Croze earns top poster award at Beckman Macular Degeneration Meeting
Stem Cell Center researcher and MCDB graduate student Roxanne Croze earned the top poster award at a meeting of the Beckman Initiative for Macular Research at UC Irvine. Roxanne’s poster, entitled “Monitoring stem cell transplants in ocular disease: The RPE Christmas tree”, reported her recent work in Dennis Clegg’s lab. Lyndsay Leach and Monte Radeke were also authors on the poster. Through a generous grant from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation, the Beckman Initiative for Macular Research (BIMR) brings together outstanding scientists, engineers, medical researchers, and clinicians — all focused on a common goal: developing a better understanding of atrophic macular degeneration.
