Award Winners for 2008 IMGC

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. Other monetary awards this year are given by genesis and the American Society of Human Genetics.

A large group of publishing companies sponsor this year’s presentation prizes, which are a one year subscription to their journal. Springer is also donating a book. These awards 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.
