Presentations


Several of the faculty, residents, staff and students associated with the laboratory have given talks and presented posters describing their work on the HSCMS at national and international meetings. Listed chronologically below, these have also included a number of presentations of experimental results at our weekly laboratory meetings. In each case, the presenting author’s name is shown in bold type.
