Two Webster University nurse anesthesia students received first place in a research poster presentation held during the Aug. 4-8 American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
Kim Powderly and Vanessa Voudrie, guided by associate professor and Department of Biological Sciences chair Stephanie Schroeder, received a blue ribbon for their poster, titled “A mitotic loss of heterozygosity in drosophila melanogaster following administration of isoflurane and seviflurane.” Their poster and presentation were chosen out of 103 contenders.
Two other pairs of Webster students presented at the AANA Foundation Poster Session:
Kori Kireta and Keeli Plati, guided by assistant professor and Nurse Anesthesia program director Jill Stulce, presented “Changes in 8-iso-PGF2a levels as a result of increased inspired oxygen concentrations in the elective surgical patient.”
Tim Dykstra and Rick Spangler, guided by associate professor Ron Gaddis, presented “Dose and time-dependent effects of Isoflurane on beta amyloid production on PC-12 cells in vitro.”
