Recently, Project Bridge Colorado, AMC's Postdoctoral Association and the AMC chapter of SACNAS hosted STEM Day at the Colorado State Capitol. The stated goals of the events were to “(1) give early stage investigators practice in explaining their research to lay audiences, (2) allow local Coloradans to learn about the important research being done in their communities and (3) start a dialogue between scientists and their legislators to help enable science-based policies.”
APPM graduate student Alex McManus was selected to participate in a poster session presenting his research – increasing the ability of MRI for 3D imaging during pregnancy to treat rare birth conditions. During this poster talk, Alex was able to speak to Colorado legislators and the general public regarding his important research that can help save lives.
The Applied Math Department congratulates Alex for putting his impressive work on display!
