Another summer seminar

It's always nice to welcome one of your own back.

Our next visiting mentor, Dr. Matthew Garcia, is a UTPA alumnus. He will returning to his old stomping grounds to present a seminar titled, "The mitochondria and neurodegeneration: A tale of two proteins, μ-calpain and PANK2" on 15 July 2008, 11:30 am, in SCIE 2.106.

Matt Garcia completed his Bachelor’s degree in Biology here in 2002. He then completed his doctoral research at the University of Kentucky in 2007. He is currently a postdoctoral associate at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
