Congratulations to Holtzman Lab undergraduate researcher Hope HopeMiodownikMiodownik, who won the Jonas E. Salk Scholarship this year.  She is one of eight CUNY winners, two of which were from Queens College.  The requirements for the award are that the student has been accepted to medical school and has written a research paper.  Hope’s project was entitled “Elucidation of a comprehensive model of epicardiogenesis in zebrafish: the role of BMP signaling in epicardial migration”.  Below is an image of a three-day-old zebrafish heart. The green is the myocardium (heart muscle) and the purple is the epicardium (developing outermost layer of the heart).
