Congratulations to Alex, Harikesh & Zhongyuan for their poster award!

The Bowdish lab undergraduates, Zhongyuan, Harikesh & Alex, co-presented their poster entitled “Your Mama’s so phat, even a macrophage couldn’t engulf her” at the IIDR Opening Symposium and won best undergraduate poster. Don’t let the title fool you, this was a very serious piece of work on their characterization of MARCO expression & function. Below is the excerpt from the IIDR website.
