TRAINEE MEET AND MINGLE


(L-R) Sam Giordano, Philip Wages, Edward Moreira Bahnson, Adam Case, and Kimberly Dunham-Snary

This past year, Trainee Council introduces blue lanyards for the trainees at the SFRBM 2015 Annual Meeting held in Boston, MA. This made it easier for graduate students and postdocs to identify each other for low key and stress-free networking and to help build strong mentoring teams among the faculty and more senior members of the society.

Further, we introduced the first anual Trainee Meet and Mingle Event during the SFRBM Annual Meeting Welcome Reception. We are excited to report that this is our society's most well-attended trainee event. It was a wonderful opportunity to mingle, network, win prizes, and eat/drink with fellow trainees. The Trainee Council would like to thank all the trainees, faculty, and SFRBM executives who made this event a success!

MENTORING EXCELLENCE AWARD

The SFRBM Mentoring Excellence Award will recognize outstanding mentorship provided by a current member of the SFRBM. The award recipient could be a junior, mid-career or senior principal investigator, who will be nominated by trainees of the SFRBM.
