For the Division-wide awards (encompassing the entire meeting), Kha won the Best Poster Award. This includes $250, a certificate, and an automatic induction into Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Honor Society.
For the Sectional Awards in Cell and Molecular Biology, she won the first-place award. This award includes $150 and a certificate.
Studies in the Tseng laboratory seek to identify the mechanisms that enable animals to regenerate organs and tissues with the goal of applying this knowledge toward developing regenerative therapeutics. Kha's work is supported in part by a Faculty Top Tier Doctoral Graduate Dissertation Research Assistantship.
