Stephen Rogers, Ph.D., a postdoctoral research scholar in the Department of Pediatrics, explains his poster titled “Hypoxia limits antioxidant capacity in red blood cells by altering glycolytic pathway dominance” to Solange Landreville, Ph.D., a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, at the Fifth Annual Postdoc Scientific Symposium Feb. 24 in the Eric P. Newman Education Center. Rogers, who works in the lab of Allan Doctor, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics and director of Critical Care Medicine, received an honorable mention for his poster at the symposium, which recognizes the work postdoctoral researchers perform at Washington University and provides a forum for them to illustrate the scope of their research. Forty-one postdoctoral researchers presented at the poster session, and six spoke at the symposium, where Craig Coopersmith, M.D., associate professor of surgery and of anesthesiology, received the Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award from the Washington University Postdoctoral Society.
