  • Alicia Gonzalez Martin, senior research associate in the Xiao Lab, attended the Keystone Symposia Immune Regulation in Autoimmunity and Cancer in Whistler, British Columbia, to present “MicroRNA control of B cell tolerance and autoimmunity.”
  • Mark Herzik, Helen Hay Whitney Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in the Lander Lab, will attend the Three-Dimensional Electron Microscopy Gordon Research Conference in Les Diablerets, Switzerland, to present “Obtaining 3 Å Resolution Structures of Biomedical Targets at 200 keV.”

Award applications will be accepted again in the fall. Postdoctoral researchers who have never attended a scientific meeting to present their current work are encouraged to apply; additionally, previously unsuccessful applicants are urged to re-apply. Visit the SoF website for details.
