MCB student Xiaoji Chen wins $20,000 research award
Hard work has paid off, literally, for third year MCB student Xiaoji Chen. At the Small Nucleic Acid Symposium held in October at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Xiaoji was awarded $20,000 for her poster presentation “Functional Genetic Approach to Map Regulatory Networks Governing the Lineage Commitment of Human Hematopoietic Stem Cells.” Competing against post-docs, PIs and other students, Xiaoji was one of eight people chosen for awards by Hutch faculty judges and symposium attendees.
The awards are funded by a pilot study grant given to Dr. Beverly Torok-Storb of the Clinical Research Division at the Hutch.
