2022 SACNAS Graduate Student Oral Presentation Award (Rodolfo Corona Rodriguez)

Rodolfo Corona Rodriguez University of California Berkeley Berkeley, CA Using Multi-view 3D Reconstruction for Understanding Descriptions of 2D Images Language provides a natural interface for humans to interact with robotic systems. Because robots are embodied in the world, they must be able to understand the links between language and their visual perception for this communication […]

Omar Lujano Olazaba San Diego State and University of California San Diego San Diego, CA The role of chemotherapy-induced fibrosis in the maintenance of tumor initiatingcells Ovarian cancer patients initially respond to cytotoxic chemotherapy but most relapse with chemoresistant disease. Research over the years supports the notion that tumor-initiating cells (TICs), a subpopulation of drug […]

2022 SACNAS Graduate Student Oral Presentation Award (Ester Álvarez Benedicto)

Ester Álvarez Benedicto UT Southwestern Dallas, TX Optimization of phospholipid chemistry for improved lipid nanoparticle (LNP) delivery of messenger RNA (mRNA) Lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) have been established as an essential platform for nucleic acid delivery. Efforts have led to the development of vaccines that protect against SARS-CoV-2 infection using LNPs to deliver messenger RNA (mRNA) […]

2022 SACNAS Graduate Student Oral Presentation Award (Elizabeth Delgado)

Elizabeth Delgado University of Michigan Ann Arbor, MI Distinct Wnt Signaling Thresholds Required for Polyposis in the Proximal and DistalStomach Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a genetic disorder characterized by the formation of precancerous polyps throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Polyps form in response to increased Wnt signaling caused by mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli […]
