Title: A Genetic Screen Identifies Myo-V as a Component of Abl Signaling Pathways (702A) (Poster)
Description: This research looks at the effects that expressing a mutant protein, Bcr-Abl, which causes chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), has on cell migration during development. CML is a bone marrow stem cell cancer that affects about 4,600 new patients every year. This research will help identify components of the Bcr-Abl pathway that could potentially need to new treatment options for CML.

For many of these students this is the first time they have attended a professional scientific research conference where they are describing their research to other undergraduates, doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, and principal investigators, including Nobel Laureates, from research laboratories all over the world.

"A fundamental part of science is the presentation of one's work to fellow scientists. This travel award enhances the research experience of undergraduates by giving them the opportunity to present their work at the annual Drosophila Conference," said Helen Salz, PhD, Chair of the Finnerty Award review committee and a professor at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

"It was inspiring to read these applications. The number of extraordinary undergraduates conducting significant research far exceeded the number of awards we had available," said Dr. Salz. "We at GSA have no doubt that the future of genetics is strong with such talented young people leading the field," added Adam Fagen, PhD, GSA Executive Director.

The Victoria Finnerty Undergraduate Travel Awards were established in 2011 in memory of its namesake, who was a long-time GSA member, a dedicated undergraduate educator at Emory University for 35 years, and an active member of the Drosophila researc
