2020 Poster Awards
2020 has been an interesting year for conferences. With the pandemic shutting down most in-person meetings, many conference have decided to go virtual. Despite this obstacle, the Galvan lab has still been able to present posters and talks about all of our exciting and late-breaking research. We would like to congratulate our graduate student Angela Olson Dorigatti, for receiving a poster award at the Texas Alzheimer's Research and Care Consortium (TARCC), and our MD/PhD student Andy Banh for receiving first place at the South Texas Alzheimer's Conference (STAC).
