Maybe it’s my “Type A” personality—which comes with a need to organize everything—but boy do I like a good event recap. This month, our volunteer writers have done a fabulous job summarizing the Eleventh Annual NICHD Fellows Meeting presentations. They’ve captured the essence of each talk in a concise review, perfect for those readers who missed the event or want a quick refresher of the day.
We also have several exciting announcements, including the 2015 Three-minute-Talks finalists, the Fellows Award for Research Excellence recipients for 2016, and this year’s fellow and investigator Mentors of the Year—with nomination excerpts!
On a personal note, thank you for the several congratulations on my family’s new baby girl, Eliana. During my pregnancy, labor, and delivery, often I thought about the important role the NICHD plays in ensuring the health and safety of society’s youngest members.
