Amanda Stolarz, 2015 LE&RN Travel Award Recipient

I am a PharmD/PhD student at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. I study lymphatic function in response to drug therapies. 

I want to thank LE&RN for providing the opportunity for me to attend "The Third Circulation: Lymphatics as Regulators in Health and Disease" Symposium. Attending this Conference put me in the same room as leading scientists in my field, who not only provided feedback and help on my current project, but also discussed advances to the field in general. 

Research in the field of lymphatics is important because knowledge is power. In the field of lymphatics, that knowledge can translate into the power to impact patient lives. Within the next few years, I anticipate our knowledge of lymphatic function will greatly increase, leading to potential therapies for lymphatic diseases. And I hope to continue to contribute to this knowledge with a focus on translational lymphatic research as I advance in my career.
