The annual NIH Research Festival highlights the array of innovative research conducted at in-house labs across NIH. Poster sessions at the festival showcase the research of NIH’s fellows and trainees, stimulating discussion across NIH Institutes and labs. This year’s festival also included a special poster session that allowed NIH Institute and Scientific Directors to highlight their research alongside that of fellows and trainees.
Investigators from NINR’s Division of Intramural Research presented posters at the festival, covering areas such as fatigue related to cancer and its treatment, the effects of exercise on mitochondrial function, weight gain after organ transplant, and the effectiveness of genotype-phenotype profiles for predicting severity of symptoms related to certain genetic myopathies.

Cancer-Related Fatigue and the Adaptive Response to Oxidative Stress
K Dickinson, D Wang, J Barb, JP Bennett, S Collins, D Lyon, LN Saligan
