UTMB Presentations at the Upcoming 2008 American Society of Dermatopathology Annual Meeting

From Dr. Wagner:

Second year dermatology resident Ryan Matherne and 4th year medical student Leslie Scroggins have received notification that their abstracts have both been accepted for poster presentation in San Francisco this October. Dr. Matherne will be presenting, "Spindle cells in nephrogenic systemic fibrosis do not differentiate into myofibroblasts," while co-author Dr. Catherine McNeese (former UTMB dermatopathology fellow) will present on findings from Leslie's UTMB Dermatology Research Honors Program thesis entitled, "The role of matrix metalloproteinases and their inhibitors in nephrogenic systemic fibrosis." Dr. Brent Kelly (UTMB Dermatopathology) mentored these two research projects. Congratulations to all of them for their exciting new accomplishments!
