Congratulations to Katie Whitehead on her admission to the MD/PhD program at LSUHSC-New Orleans. Katie joined the lab as an undergraduate and then stayed on to complete a master's degree in Molecular Science and Nanotechnology. Katie has presented at a number of state conferences where her ability to communicate her research was recognized when she was awarded 1st place in poster and oral presentation competitions. Katie also presented at a national meeting where her research was positively received by experts in the field of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. Katie has been awarded ANS minigrants and Louisiana Space Consortium grants both as an undergraduate and graduate student. Although she graduated last May, Katie has continued to work in the lab as a part time research associate, completing her second manuscript on which she is first author, and training new students in the lab. Katie has been a tremendous asset to the lab and I am so proud of all she has and will continue to achieve. Congratulations Katie - a much deserved next step in your career!
