Congratulations to Brittany Lee-McMullen for receiving the Pre-Doctoral Trainee Oral Presentation Award at the Translational Science 2014 Meeting, held April 9-11, in Washington, DC, for her research presentation, “Metabolomic Analysis for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.”

An IDP graduate student in the Department of Physiology and Functional Genomics at the University of Florida’s College of Medicine, Brittany is co-mentored by SECIM’s Drs. Glenn Walter and Art Edison, with Dr. Krista Vandenborne serving as her Clinical Mentor.  Brittany is using metabolomics to search for biomarkers of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in a large project, ImagingDMD, directed by Dr. Vandenborne in UF’s Department of Physical Therapy.  Brittany would like to acknowledge the CTSI TL1 program, Southeastern Center for Integrated Metabolomics (SECIM), and the ImagingDMD team and lab members.
