Dr. Deng Wins SLB G. Jeanette Thorbecke Award


Congratulations Dr. Deng!

The Thorbecke award was created by the SLB to honor G. Jeanette Thorbecke, M.D., Ph.D., a Professor of Pathology at the New York University School of Medicine, who tragically died in a swimming accident in November 2001. She had gone to Hawaii at the invitation of the SLB to receive the 2001 Marie T. Bonazinga Award and to deliver a lecture at the Cytokine Odyssey meeting. Being an avid swimmer, she went for a swim in the Pacific Ocean after the meeting was over. Sadly, she was stung by a Portuguese man-of-war jellyfish which resulted in fatal complications. The award is intended for a deserving young female investigator working in the area of cellular and molecular mechanisms of host defense and inflammation.

Dr. Deng will present her abstract, “Neutrophil-specific knockout demonstrates a role for mitochondria in regulating neutrophil motility in zebrafish”, on Sunday, October 14th at 3:45 PM at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, AZ, October 14-16, 2018.
