A Drinko Center Travel Grant enabled senior biology major Taylor Gatesman to travel to Washington, D.C., to present her research at the American Society of Cell Biology meeting in December 2019.

Gatesman presented her honors research in the area of nuclear cell biology titled “Pcid2 Influences Brca1/Bard1 Localization and Centrosome Duplication through its Functions in Nuclear Protein and mRNA Export.”

Gatesman’s poster was well received both at the undergraduate poster session and the main session on nuclear transport, where she discussed her work with both U.S. based and international scientists.

“Being able to attend the conference and see what other students and institutions are studying provides an opportunity to explore a more diverse research setting,” said Taylor.

Gatesman conducted her research under the mentorship of Dr. Karen Resendes, associate professor of biology.
