NICHD Postdoctoral Fellow Kathryn Tabor Takes First Prize!
During the second annual Three-minute-Talk (TmT) competition on July 16, fourteen intramural NICHD, NHGRI, and NIDCR postdoc and graduate student fellows competed for the title of first, second, or third place winner. The top three fellows receive travel/training support and will have their talk professionally produced for a video.
After an exciting event packed with outstanding presentations from the finalists, our very own Kathryn Tabor, graduate student in the Burgess lab, amazed the judges with neurons that modulate the acoustic startle reflex in zebrafish. Her clear presentation and beautiful slide earned her first place among all fellows.
Congratulations to Dr. Tabor and to all of our NICHD TmT finalists. Great job!
