International Mammalian Genome Society

logo18th International Mouse Genome Conference

17-22 October 2004, Seattle, USA


The Secretariat and 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 first of these awards is the Verne Chapman Young Scientist Award, which 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 scientists. Verne Chapman Young Scientist Award went to David Keays (University of Oxford).

A large group of publishing companies sponsor this year's presentation prizes, which are 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.
