FLiiCR Spotlight:

Congratulations to our very own FLiiCR student Enakshi Sunassee on winning a student research award for her poster “Characterization of migration phenotype of pancreatic cancer cell lines” at last weekend’s Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), held at the Tampa Convention Center past week/weekend.

Please find a copy of her poster below, which showcased her FLiiCR project together with Nicole Jones this summer. Thank you all for your great mentorship and facilitation of this truly exceptional program for incredible students.

Enakshi continues as an intern in both wetlab and math modeling work.
