International Mammalian Genome Society

17th International Mouse Genome Conference

9-12 November 2003, Braunschweig, Germany


2003 Awards

The Secretariat and the members of The International Mammalian Genome Society are proud of the students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty who present oral and poster presentations at the annual meeting. The outstanding contributions of these young scientists are recognized through several awards.

The Verne Chapman Young Scientist Award is given to the most outstanding oral presentation from a postdoctoral fellow or student. This is a monetary award of $500 that reflects Dr. Chapman’s dedication to mentoring junior scientist. In 2003 the VMC Award went to Christine Machka (GSF, Munich).

A second place oral presentation award was given to Christophe Poirier (Baylor College of Medicine). The award consisted of a one year subscription to Nature Review Genetics.

A large group of publishing companies sponsored this year’s presentation prizes, which were a one year subscription to their journal. They are given to the most outstanding poster presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and are chosen by members of the IMGS Secretariat during the course of the meeting.
