Congratulations to Ana Cartaya for being awarded a Young Investigator Award by the Society for Redox Biology and Medicine (SfRBM)!

Brahnson Research Group – Ana Cartaya, Young Investigators Award winner (center) holds award certificate.

Ana, who is pharmacology graduate student in the laboratory of professor Edward Bahnson (Surgery, and joint appointment in Pharmacology), just returned from the Society for Redox Biology and Medicine (SfRBM) Annual Conference where she won a Young Investigator Award for her presentation “Macrophage-mediated targeted delivery of redox interventions for the prevention of restenosis.” The presentation was evaluated by 3 independent judges on 3 criteria: accuracy, impact, and presenter. The judges scores were combined with the online abstract review for a final score that positioned Ana amongst this year’s winners. Ana received her award at the Closing Banquet Ceremony, including a certificate, a cash prize, and free registration for either the 2020 or 2021 Annual Conference.

Dr. Bahnson writes “Needless to say, this is a major accomplishment as SfRBM has a very rigorous judging system and the organization is recognized for its scientific excellence.”

Congratulations again, Ana! We are very proud of you!
