Hubin Presents and Cannon Wins Award at NISBRE
Dr. Tim Hubin, associate professor in the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Chemistry and Physics Department, and his research student Desiray Cannon of McAlester recently presented their research at the 3rd Biennial National IDeA Symposium of Biomedical Research Excellence (NISBRE) in Bethesda, Maryland.
Dr. Hubin's poster, "Transition Metal Complex CXCR4 Antagonists as Anti-Metastatic Agents," was chosen as one of 11 featured posters in the cancer section of the meeting.
Cannon's poster, "Does Ring Size Matter? Cyclen Based CXCR4 Antagonists," was one of 11 featured posters in the immunology and infectious diseases section. Cannon was one of only 18 undergraduates awarded the Sidney A. McNairy Jr. Student Travel Award, consisting of $1000 and an engraved plaque. Recipients were selected based on rating and peer review of submitted abstracts.
Featured posters were presented in special sessions for each section and were chosen by a panel of peer reviewers based on abstracts submitted prior to the meeting. Over 400 presentations were made by researchers from 23 states and territories receiving INBRE funding from the National Institutes of Health.
