William P. Mosenthal (Biology ’11) recently presented his senior research at the 2011 Experimental Biology Meeting in Washington, D.C. Will’s attendance at the meeting was funded by a summer undergraduate research fellowship he received from the American Physiological Society. Aside from travel funds, the fellowship also provided a stipend which allowed Mosenthal to begin his senior research last summer under the guidance of Dr. Ana Y. Estevez. The title of Will’s presentation was: 'Neuroprotective mechanisms of cerium oxide nanoparticles’ and included as co-authors: Dr. Estevez, Dr. Joe Erlichman, Dr. Silvana Andreescu (Clarkson University), Abigail Lynch (Biology ’10), Michael D. Nieves (Neuroscience ’11) and Alissa Beideck (Neuroscience ’11). Mosenthal will be pursuing a medical degree at Dartmouth Medical School in the Fall.
Experimental Biology is the annual meeting of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology which represents six sponsoring societies, including the American Physiological Society. Nearly 13,000 scientists participated in this year’s meeting.
