Chino Cabalteja attains PhD


Mr. Chino Cabalteja, current MBSB graduate student, passed his oral defense earlier this week and completed his Ph.D. degree.  Chino carried out dissertation research with Prof. Seth Horne in the Department of Chemistry, University of Pittsburgh.  He presented a talk on his work, titled “Structural and Functional Mimicry of Disulfide-Rich Peptides”, to an audience of ~30 colleagues, friends, and family who connected remotely from as close as Pittsburgh to as a far as half a world away.  New degree in hand, Chino will be moving on later this month to start a postdoctoral position at the National Institutes of Health.

Congratulations, Chino!
