“Something for everyone” is the theme of this month’s issue:
- For our postbacs, we have introductory bios from our new postbac reps followed by important changes to the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
- Dr. Payal Ray recaps the latest NICHD Exchange meeting on animal models in biomedical research, a relevant topic to many of our trainees.
- And for those graduate students and postdocs who are looking for interesting career opportunities, we present a recap of the November lunchtime career session on science policy and outline helpful tips from last month’s Academic Jobs Workshop on teaching-based professorship applications.
To round it out, we have compiled our annual Year in Review, a fun summary of NICHD fellow and mentor accomplishments throughout 2014. But don’t let me take up any more of your time—go enjoy, learn, and be merry!
