BESTie Elvis Cao wins 2017 SigmaXi grad division

BESTie Xiangkun Elvis Cao was chosen by the scientific research honor society SigmaXi as the 2017 Graduate Division winner of the student research showcase for his work in David Erickson's lab on the Feverphone. His communication skills (recognized by the 3MT People's Choice award) earned him the top slot and brought him to the attention of the organizers of the 9th annual Biotechnology Symposium on May 19 & 20 who have invited him to join a panel of expert communicators to discuss the importance of science communication and public understanding at this state-wide symposium geared toward bringing academics and industry experts closer together.
