CABM Atrium is Named in Honor of Director Dr. Aaron Shatkin

The Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine's south atrium was named in honor of founding director and researcher Dr. Aaron Shatkin in recognition of his two and a half decades of research leadership to the center. The ceremony was part of a two-day event commemorating 25 years of research at CABM and the center’s 25th anniversary symposium.

The commemorative plaque is inscribed as follows:

This atrium is named to honor
