Nahomie Rodriguez-Sastre, Ph.D. student in the Bradham Lab, recently received the “Outstanding Poster Award” at the Developmental Biology of the Sea Urchin (DBSU) in Woods Hole, MA for her poster titled: “Ethanol treatment perturbs skeletal patterning during sea urchin development.”

Nahomie’s research uses the sea urchin to identify the pathway that EtOH is affecting that gives rise to physical defects and some neurological problems that might be similar to fetal alcohol syndrome.
