The NICHD Connection is celebrating its three-year anniversary! Over the past few years, fellows from across the institute have discussed their research, recapped numerous seminars and events, and expressed what their time at the NICHD has meant to them. From a simple idea to better connect the NICHD fellow community to a monthly publication by and for the fellows, I couldn’t be happier with how this newsletter has developed over time.
Every month, I look forward to reading newsletter submissions and discussing articles with fellows. Truly, it’s an honor to work with all of you in putting this together. This month’s issue is no exception.
On our anniversary pages you’ll find an “interesting opportunity” in the Health Education Outreach Program, award-winning research from our postbac fellows, plenty of photos from recent NIH events, and a wonderful narration of the Ninth Annual Fellows Retreat. Keep an eye out next month for the most popular questions asked at the retreat’s roundtable career discussions.
On our anniversary issue, I want to write a special thank you to three people whose support for this project was and continues to be integral to its success: thank you to Dr. Guttmacher, Dr. Stratakis, and Brenda Hanning. Your support, as always, is very much appreciated.
Your Editor in Chief,
Shana R. Spindler, PhD
