Please join us in congratulating Jean Marie Mwiza, co-mentored by Wolfgang Bergmeier and Alisa Wolberg, who gave a fantastic presentation on his thesis work last Friday entitled, “Determining the Platelet Signaling Pathway(s) Critical in Venous Thrombosis Pathogenesis.” Jean Marie is already a doctor (of veterinary medicine), but now he can add another degree to his arsenal.

In the course of his dissertation research, Jean Marie has earned both an American Heart Association fellowship and F31, and been supported by the Integrative Vascular Biology training grant. Part of his research was recently published in the premier journal Blood, and he has given many invited talks at local and national conferences and was selected to give a talk in last year’s Pathology Annual Research Symposium.

He has 8 publications (2 1st author and 6 co-author) and 9 published abstracts.

What makes these accomplishments even more impressive is that he had to switch labs when his former advisor left UNC. In addition to being an outstanding scientist, Jean Marie is a father (of three beautiful children, who were all in attendance at his talk), husband, and generous and beloved colleague.

Congratulations Jean Marie, and we all look forward to seeing what you will accomplish next!
