Howard Wins at National IGERT Competition


At the National Science Foundation 2010 IGERT Principal Investigators Meeting in May, Melissa Howard represented the University of Kentucky in the Trainee Poster Contest. The posters were to communicate significant impacts from the trainees’ IGERT program. There were 126 competitors and Howard was 1 of 10 award winners with her poster on “Solid Lipid Nanoparticles for the Targeted Delivery of Dexamethasone to Tumors.” As part of this prestigious award, the NSF provides travel funds to the winners. This is the second year in a row that a trainee from the University of Kentucky received an award at the national meeting.
