Research Stories

Concussion discussion

With a national clamor for more information on head impacts in sports, the University of Delaware is positioned directly in the middle of the concussion discussion.

Peering into cell structures

A University of Delaware research team led by Tatyana Polenova and colleagues from the Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope have revealed for the first time, atom by atom, the structure of a protein bound to a microtubule.

To facilitate more interactions between young and senior scientists, the meeting also will include short presentations by undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. The best undergraduate and graduate student talks of the day will receive the Marsho Award. Poster presentations also are encouraged. 

The deadline for abstract submissions is April 2. Registration closes on April 4.
