Congratulations to Jennifer Tang, who won the CAP Best Oral Presentation Competition last week in the Division of Medical and Biological Physics, and then came first again in the overall competition between division winners.  The research for her presentation "The Formation of Alzheimer's Plaques in Synthetic Membranes", was performed in Dr. Rheinstadter's lab.  Jennifer, an undergraduate who will soon enter the 4th year of the Honours Biophysics program, was competing for the most part against graduate students.
