A special recognition goes to Dr. Greg Passmore and his students Jessica Robinson and Thomas Lynam whose paper just received second place in the cardiology group at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging’s 2014 national meeting in St Louis.
We would like to thank the Office of the Provost and the Office of Sponsored Research for making this program a possibility. We would also like to thank Dr. Gretchen Caughman, Dr. Carol Rychly, and Dr. Mark Hamrick. Additionally, the Summer Scholars Program Selection Committee should be recognized for their efforts.
