In November 2011, during the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), Industrial Biotechnology senior student Christie Rodriguez presented a poster titled "Surface Functionalization of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles for Magnetic Drug Targeting." This research is part of Dr. Oscar Perales-Perez's interdisciplinary group (IRG2). During this conference around 1,300 outstanding undergraduate research posters were presented. Christie received the Outstanding Poster Presentation award in the categories of Engineering, Physics, and Math. Additionally she received an award in a new category: Interdisciplinary Research. In this category 160 students competed and 41 were recognized. Earlier this year, Christie received a Research Stipend Scholarship from the partnership established between MD Anderson Cancer Center and the University of Puerto Rico for her research related to cancer therapeutics.
