It is quite the month ahead for NICHD fellows! Among the NICHD Seventh Annual Meeting at the Airlie Conference Center, the Fourth Annual NIH Career Symposium, the Postbac Poster Day, and the great workshops offered in May, there is little time to waste. Between these great events, I hope you find a moment to read the fantastic articles in this month's issue written by our NICHD fellows.
Dr. Andrew Evans, a former NICHD fellow who recently began a career away from the bench, describes his new work in a Q&A session with The NICHD Connection. For those fellows still in the midst of postdoctoral training, Dr. Silviya Zustiak offers an intriguing piece about the different lifestyles and stress levels of postdoc moms versus postdoc dads.
If you missed the April career panel hosted by the Bethesda Chapter of the Association for Women in Science, check out Dr. Megan Sampley's recap for a brief review and more information.
Given that many fellows are currently preparing posters for this year's retreat, The NICHD Connection's own design guru, Nichole Jonas, offers a few insightful tips about how to enhance communication in scientific posters using graphic design.
