Hutchinson Center graduate and undergraduate students fared well at recent national scientific conferences.

Jacquelyn Lang, a graduate student in the Basic Sciences Division's Biggins Lab, won first place and $1,500 for her presentation at the American Indian Science and Engineering Society national conference held in Anchorage, Alaska, in early November. Her poster, "Sumoylation of the budding yeast CENP-A," competed against 10 entries in the graduate poster session. Lang is in her second year of the joint Fred Hutch/University of Washington Molecular and Cellular Biology program.
