The two students presented a poster entitled, “Diet Induced Obesity Alters Skeletal Muscle Fiber Types of Male But Not Female Mice,” and were awarded First Place Overall in Undergraduate Poster Presentations.

DeNies also presented an oral presentation entitled, “The Power of Proteomics: A Study of Viral Mediated Post Translational Modification,” and was awarded First Place Overall in Undergraduate Oral Presentations.
