Alex Morrison-Nozik has been selected as a finalist for Graduate Student Best Abstract Award in the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics’ (ASPET) Cardiovascular Pharmacology Showcase.
Morrison-Nozik is investigating the role of a novel modulator, Sestrin2, in activating AMPK, a protein that shows promise as a protective agent during heart attacks. The research may point toward new therapies for ischemic heart disease.
Ji Li, PhD, assistant professor of pharmacology and toxicology, is Morrison-Nozik’s award sponsor.
