As the Editor for The NICHD Connection, I have had a wonderful time meeting and interviewing amazing fellows and staff at our institute, and it has been my privilege to share their stories with you. I sincerely thank everyone who has helped get this newsletter up and running!
On to the important stuff! The October issue is packed with fun, popular science-style articles written by the NICHD FARE winners about their own research, and Kris Langlais gives a great description of his "Interesting Opportunity"—a new column discussing unique programs that can broaden a fellow's experience while at the NIH. As always, don't forget to check out the upcoming events in October, including The NIH Research Festival, informative seminars, and a not-to-be-missed fellow lunch outing to Rock Bottom Brewery.
On a final note, we are still looking for a replacement Editor for The NICHD Connection. If you are interested in trading a small amount of time for a very rewarding experience, please contact Brenda Hanning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
