Jefferson Laboratories’ Inaugural Postdoctoral Research Day 

Jefferson Laboratories celebrated NCTR and ORA/Arkansas Laboratory (ARKL) postdoctoral research in March 2018 by giving our fellows the opportunity to present and discuss their research projects to an audience of fellow Jefferson Laboratories scientists. It was an inaugural full-day event that featured 11 oral presentations and 20 poster presentations. The keynote lecture on “Radiation Toxicology Research” was delivered by Dr. Martin Hauer-Jensen, Associate Dean of Research, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. The event was created, organized, and planned by the Jefferson Fellows Advisory Committee to highlight important and exciting research at the Jefferson Laboratories. Our fellows are essential to the success of Jefferson Laboratories and we enjoyed celebrating their research accomplishments.

First Annual NCTR Science Forum
The highly successful First Annual NCTR Science Forum — attended by 120 NCTR staff and fellows — was designed to 1) foster interaction; 2) showcase and discuss science; 3) enhance collaboration among NCTR scientists, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting fellows; and 4) find synergies among research groups. The Forum was held in April 2018 at the Heifer Village in Little Rock, Arkansas. Anil Patri, Ph.D., Director, NCTR/ORA Nanotechnology Core Facility delivered the welcoming remarks, followed by a brief “Historical Perspective of Toxicology and NCTR” provided by William Slikker, Jr., Ph.D., NCTR Center Director. Selected oral presentations by principal investigators from each of the research divisions and core facilities at NCTR where then presented on the following topics:
  • predictive drug toxicology
  • efficacy
  • physiologically based pharmacokinetic modeling
  • modeling
  • organoid models
  • antimicrobial resistance
  • neurotoxicology
  • MALDI and MRI imaging
  • nanotechnology 
The afternoon poster session was highly interactive with 50 posters covering the breadth of state-of-the-art research at NCTR. The event adjourned with an award ceremony for oral and poster categories led by Daniel Acosta, Ph.D., NCTR Deputy Director of Research. Click here to find bio-sketches for each of the awardees listed below .
