APCRC-Q Researchers win a prestigious poster prize at ENDO 2015

Research by our APCRC-Q team, Drs M. Sadowski, A. Rockstroh, C. Soekmadji, S. McPherson, G. Tevz, J. Gunter , V. Jeet, and Prof C. Nelson, and presented by APCRC-Q Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Dr Martin Sadowski, won the Presidential Poster Competition at the Endocrine Society’s 97th Annual Meeting and Expo (affectionately known as ENDO 2015).

“This award represents a very prestigious accolade,” said Endocrine Society President Dr Richard Santen, “since only high-scoring trainee-authored abstracts were selected for participation.”

The poster, presented in a session on Late-breaking Nuclear Receptors and Steroid Hormone Action II, and entitled “Phenotypic and Molecular Analysis of Androgen Receptor Signaling in the DuCaP Prostate Cancer Cell Line,” was selected from a multitude of high-calibre entries and judged by three senior faculty judges to be of exceptional merit.

 “We congratulate Dr Sadowski and co-workers on this team achievement,” said Prof Colleen Nelson, Executive Director of the APCRC-Q. “It is a good reflection on the calibre of our researchers that their work has received recognition at such a large and well-respected conference.”
