|INBRE biology core seminar is Friday|
The first North Dakota INBRE Biology Core seminar of the new school year will be presented over the statewide Interactive Video Network (IVN) Friday, Sept. 29, from 3 to 3:50 p.m. These seminars feature presentations by students from around the state working with INBRE researchers. UND students can view and participate in the seminar in Room 302, Education Building.
The first in a series of monthly seminars will be presented by Donald Anton, a senior at Valley City State University who is currently working in the university's toxicology laboratory with INBRE researcher Hilde van Gijssel. During the summer, Anton studied the effect of the chlorophenoxy herbicides 2,4-D and MCPA on the interaction between the fibroblast growth factor receptor and its ligand using a computational approach. He is studying this interaction using an in vitro model. He collaborated with the group of Stefan Balaz at NDSU. In this seminar, he will discuss their research results to date.
North Dakota INBRE (IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence) is a statewide network administered by the School of Medicine and Health Sciences in collaboration with NDSU. Major projects are led by researchers at Dickinson State University, Mayville State University, Minot State University, Turtle Mountain Community College and Valley City State University. It is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR). -- Patrick Miller, public information professional, North Dakota IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence.
