Gerlach Lab Postdoc Presents Award-Winning Regenerative Medicine Poster
The poster presented by McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine postdoctoral fellow Roger Esteban, PhD, entitled Delivery of Epidermal and Dermal Stem Cells to a Burn Wound via a Spray Device- Exploring Human Fetal Skin Progenitor Cells for Regenerative Medicine Cell Based Therapy, has been selected as one of the Best Poster Presentations at the University of Pittsburgh Postdoctoral Association (UPPDA) 2012 Postdoctoral Data & Dine Symposium. Dr. Esteban works in the laboratory of McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine faculty member Joerg Gerlach, MD, PhD, professor in the Department of Surgery, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and director of the Bioreactor Group of the McGowan Institute.
In recognition of this achievement, Dr. Esteban will receive from the UPPDA a $500 travel award to attend a scientific meeting or professional development conference. These funds may be used to pre-pay or reimburse any expenses associated with participation in a scientific meeting or professional development conference.
The travel awards recognizing Best Poster Presentations at the 2012 Postdoctoral Data & Dine Symposium were made possible through the generous contributions of sponsors across the University. It is a significant accomplishment for postdoctoral fellows whose efforts were deemed to be exemplary relative to their peers to be recognized at this event.
