Department of Pathology to present at Experimental Biology 2014

The School of Medicine will be well represented at the Experimental Biology 2014 with 11 poster presentations and one oral presentation by  students, faculty and residents during the five-day symposium in San Diego.

Experimental Biology is an annual meeting of more than 14,000 scientists and exhibitors. Presentors represent six different societies that sponsor the even as well presentors from any guest societies. General fields of study include anatomy, physiology, pathology, biochemistry, nutrition and pharmacology.

The School of Medicine presentations are from the Department of Pathology. This year’s presentations include:
