2013 Dunn Poster Contest Winners

The Dr. Michael J. Dunn Summer Research Poster Contest prize winners are listed below. Although 10 prizes typically are awarded, this year two students tied for both 9th and 10th places, thus 12 prizes will be awarded. Each prize is $500. Dr. Michael J. Dunn is the Dean Emeritus of the Medical College of Wisconsin. The funds to support the contest as well as 3 summer research slots and travel are made possible by his generosity and the generosity of the class of 1962 reunion gifts that were made to honor Dr. Dunn when he stepped down as Dean in 2008.
