Registration for the 13th Annual NICHD Fellows Meeting is open! After months of coordination, the retreat steering committee has assembled an exciting agenda “all about careers.” If I could jump from the computer screen (or smart phone) to convince you to sign up, I would! Yes, it’s that good.
To give you a sneak peek at the insanely cool careers represented at the retreat, we have a former fellow follow-up with Dr. Anthony Hickey, support scientist for the NASA Space Biology Program. You read that right—Dr. Hickey works with NASA! I mean come on, how cool is that? Keep reading and you’ll also find additional retreat info, poster prep tips, and the 2017 fellows retreat image competition winner.
We round out the issue with a warm hello to our newest NICHD fellows and a fond farewell to our recent PhD graduates—many of whom I had the privilege to work with on newsletter articles. I look forward to future Q&As with NICHD graduates as they continue into careers of their own.
On a final note, if you are interested in covering any part of the retreat on May 1, please contact me at Shana.Spindler@gmail.com. The retreat recaps are an important way to document the wonderful talks and discussions during the event.
Your Editor in Chief,
Shana R. Spindler, PhD
