    The 10th Annual Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) Student Research Symposium on Thursday, April 12 will feature a keynote address by University of Miami alumnus Mark Rosenblatt, ’99, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine.

    Rosenblatt, who will discuss “VGEF Signaling in the Cornea: Angiogenic and Neurogenic Functions” at 12 p.m. in the Lois Pope LIFE Center 7th-floor auditorium, is a physician-scientist who has made important contributions to our understanding of the regeneration of the cornea and established innovative models for investigating corneal nerve repair. His lab is also developing new tissue engineering methods for cornea regeneration and replacement.

    In addition to his talk, the symposium will include MSTP Student Scientific Talks from 1:30 to 3:15 p.m., also in the Lois Pope auditorium, and a student poster session from 3:25 to 5 p.m. in the outside courtyard.
