It has been a busy couple of weeks for Petra! First, she has been invited to speak at the 2019 O'Brien Center Spring Symposium, "Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms of Fibrosis" at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has also been awarded a travel award to attend the AUA Basic Science Symposium and present some of her work. Congratulations!

Society of Basic Urologic Research (SBUR) Annual Meeting, Palm Springs, CA
Jagpreet and Wisam presented posters with some new data. The program was very interesting, and we had a great time hearing what is new in basic urologic research. Pictures for the website have been updated and we have plenty of new ideas to implement into our projects.
It is always wonderful to catch up with everyone too!

Great Lakes Nuclear Receptor Conference
I had a wonderful time attending the 8th GLNRC, hosted by the University Of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center and presenting some new data. Always nice to hear about nuclear receptors and meet some trainees in the field. I highly recommend this meeting, as it is stellar.

Society of Basic Urologic Research (SBUR) Annual Meeting, Tampa, FL
We had a busy conference! I presented some of our work on networks that control benign prostatic hyperplasia development during the Friday morning session, and Wisam presented a poster Friday night. Always lovely to catch up with old science friends and make new ones.

After a rocky submission process, we've submitted our first collaborative grant to the Department of Defense Prostate Cancer Research Program. Very excited about the new collaboration with Dr. Derek Taylor's group at CWRU. We will know the outcome sometime in January. Keeping our fingers crossed!
