Congratulations to Drs. Biasini and Unterberger!!
Drs. Emiliano Biasini and Ursula Unterberger receive honors at an international meeting on neurodegeneration. Dr. Emiliano Biasini, an Instructor working in the laboratory of Dr. David Harris, was selected to give an oral presentation at the meeting “Prion 2010: From Agent to Disease”, which was held in Salzburg, Austria from September 8-11. A poster presented by Dr. Ursula Unterberger, a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Harris’ laboratory, was one of only five recognized by a special poster prize at the same meeting. Other members of the Harris laboratory, including Dr. Tania Massignan (a postdoctoral fellow), Isaac Solomon (an M.D.-Ph.D. student), and Jessie Turnbaugh (a Ph.D. student) also presented posters at the meeting. The meeting, which is held annually, is the major international venue for work on prion diseases, and attracts over 500 participants working on all aspects of these devastating neurodegenerative diseases.
