If you didn’t get a chance to read last month’s issue, visit http://newsletter.nichd.nih.gov and download it from the archives, because this month we have Part II for both “How to Wiki,” by Nichole Swan, and “How to Write a Personal Statement that Pops,” by Heather Dolan.
The remainder of this issue is devoted to great announcements. Congratulations are in order for Madhav Sukumaran and Mark Ziats, the NICHD recipients of the NIH Graduate Student Research Awards. You will find their research summaries here. In addition, I am very excited to announce that the NICHD Annual Retreat Steering Committee has released the keynote speaker line-up for the 8th Annual Fellows Retreat in May. Curious who the speakers will be? Find out here! You will not be disappointed.
The NICHD Connection is a fun way to share your personal announcements too. If you have a photograph of something fun, exciting, or interesting, please send it to Shana.Spindler@gmail.com for inclusion in our “Life Outside Lab” column.
Your Editor in Chief,
Shana R. Spindler, PhD
