Several UT Health San Antonio graduate students had the opportunity to attend The Health Cell's State of the Industry.

Tara Barron, Ph.D. candidate in the Integrated Biomedical Sciences program, said “the Health Cell’s State of the Industry is important for creating community between scientists, health professionals and the biomedical industry in San Antonio,” and that, “as a student, attending an event such as this provides insight into how our science can be translated into the medical field and patient care and gives validation that the work we are doing at the bench matters to the community.”

Congratulations to Aaron Horning, one of our recent Ph.D. graduates in the Cancer Biology discipline of the Integrated Biomedical Sciences program, whose first-author manuscript “Single cell RNA-seq reveals a subpopulation of prostate cancer cells with enhanced cell-cycle related transcription and attenuated androgen response” was just accepted for publication in Cancer Research!

Aaron, who was a NCI T32 trainee while in our program, graduated earlier this year and started postdoctoral training in the NIH-funded Cancer Systems Biology Scholar (CSBS) Program at Stanford University in September.

Congratulations also to his mentor, Tim Huang (Molecular Medicine)!

Let’s talk about the nights when work until 4 am, or the dinners that consist of chips from the vending machine….we should talk about those habits – especially now in January, the month when everybody wants to make changes. http://bit.ly/2E5ESlr #NewYearsResolutions
