BIOLOGY GRADUATE STUDENT KELSEY LEWIS WINS AWARD

Kelsey Lewis, a Ph.D. student in Martin Cohn’s lab, won the Best Student Paper Aubrey Gorman Award at the 2019 Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB) meeting in Tampa, FL.  The award is from the SICB Division of Comparative Endocrinology.  Kelsey’s talk described her research on how “The anti-androgenic fungicide vinclozolin disrupts sexual differentiation of the external genitalia” of embryonic mice. The research has important implications for understanding the mechanisms underlying human developmental anomalies.
Congratulations to Kelsey and the Cohn Lab on receiving this prestigious award.
