Hlatky Research AwardWe recently presented Nancy Glober with the Department’s Hlatky Research Award. This award is given annually to the medical student who takes part in The Summer Research Program and performs in an exemplary fashion.

Nancy’s project, “Aquaporin 4 Expression and Distribution in an Ischemic Model,” investigated the potential of AQP4 levels to return to normal expression after a recovery period, and potential microRNA regulation of AQP4 in astrocytes. Nancy proved to be an exemplary scientist-physician candidate and independent thinker. She became skilled in cellular and molecular biological techniques as well as cellular imaging. Her research has contributed greatly to our understanding of the regulation of AQP4 in astrocytes.
