Congratulations to Khanh Huynh, a member of the Medical Student Research Program in the Jones lab who has received one of the most prestigious annual awards, the Thomas McDonald Award, from the Society of Reproductive Investigation. This award acknowledges the highest ranked abstract by an In Training investigator within the field of fetal neuroscience. The award honors the legacy of Dr. McDonald, whose immense contributions to the field of obstetrics and gynecology focused upon neuroendocrinology of the developing fetus, placental function, fetal brain development, and uterine contractibility.

Khanh will present her oral presentation entitled ‘Sex-Dependent Changes to TGF-β Signaling in Growth Restricted Fetal Guinea Pig Brains, with and without Placenta Nanoparticle Treatment’ at the annual meeting in Denver in March.
