Isaac Garcia’s poster entitled “Cell-Free Ribosomal Incorporation of a Reactive Selenocysteine Monomer” was selected by the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) for a poster award for his awesome work in the Schepartz lab!
Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) awarded over one hundred graduate and undergraduate students from historically excluded communities for their research and presentation skills at their premier event, the National Diversity in STEM Conference held in Portland from October 26through October 28. Student research presentations help equip young researchers with the skills and mentoring they need to be successful on their STEM journey. This experience helps them refine presentation skills, receive one-on-one mentoring and feedback on research, and connect with a supportive community of peers, mentors, and role models.
A list of awardees besides our awesome undergraduate, Issac Garcia, can be found on SACNAS’ website.
