Not only did the lab members take home awards from their poster presentations but also Dr. Taku and all three lab members had the chance to network with other professionals with similar interests and attend talks about different subjects of interest.  Dr. Taku’s lab and Dr. Tedeschi’s lab also had a chance to meet up for dinner and share experiences researching PTG.
