Drum roll please...... June marks The NICHD Connection’s four-year anniversary! Since our first issue, we’ve had over 100 volunteer writers, more than 40 event recaps, plenty of helpful “Former Fellow Follow-ups,” and of course non-stop coverage of NICHD award-winning research. If you’re new to the NICHD, I encourage you to check out the newsletter archives or access theme-specific articles by clicking the “Regular Features” links on the left side of the newsletter home page.
This month’s issue is all about NICHD research. First, learn about exciting new research from the Suomi lab in our “Hot Off the Press” column. Then, enjoy as our volunteer contributors recap the Tenth Annual NICHD Fellows Meeting—the next best thing to being there.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: it’s an honor to produce this newsletter with all of you. Your research never ceases to amaze me, and I genuinely hope this publication helps each of you reach your career goals as you make significant contributions to the health of our community.
Your Editor in Chief,
Shana R. Spindler, PhD
