2012 and 2013 Suddath Award Winner Presentations

At each year’s Suddath Symposium, a Petit Institute PhD candidate conducting biological or biochemical research at the molecular or cellular level, in any field of study, is selected as the Suddath Award Winner.  As part of the award, the winner is invited to give a research presentation to the Petit community.

Although it is too late to RSVP for the lunch reception, the presentations are open to the community.  These presentations are a held just prior to the start of the 2013 Suddath Symposium.
