Experimental Therapeutics and Metabolism Program
Congratulations to Samaneh Farsijani, one of the few winners of the Emerging Leaders in Nutrition Science poster competition at the Experimental Biology 2016 conference in San Diego. She won the best abstract programmed in the eight oral sessions of the Energy and Macronutrient Metabolism Research Group of the American Society of Nutrition. Her work on protein intake and loss of lean mass in the elderly earned much positive feedback. A trainee in Dr. Stéphanie Chevalier's laboratory, Samaneh has expressed her special thanks to the RI‑MUHC Centre for Innovative Medicine biostatistical services for guidance throughout her analysis.
