2010 AMP Young Investigator Awards

AMP's Young Investigator Award, sponsored by Luminex, recognizes the best abstracts submitted by Trainees who are AMP members and who present outstanding basic or applied research in poster format at the Annual Meeting. This year the three investigators received their award at the Business/Awards Session. Each work presented had to be original, address a problem in the field of Molecular Pathology, focus on a scientific question, present experiments that are well designed and be able to describe the research and its conclusions orally. This year's recipients are:
