On behalf of the American Society for Investigative Pathology and the Committee for Career Development, Women, and Minorities, we are pleased to release the fifth edition of our trainee-specific newsletter.
In this issue, we have highlighted important need-to-know career development strategies and grant mechanism announcements. Our mission is to promote the advancement and development of all ASIP trainees by fostering continuous communication via the newsletter. In addition, we would like to remind everyone to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
TRAINEES, it’s TIME to GET INVOLVED!!! We urge all trainees to become involved in our scientific interest groups. Right now, there is a call for active members to participate in the development of the Biophysical Pathology, Cell Injury and Neuropathology Scientific Interest Groups. These groups provide opportunities for trainees to interact with other outstanding ASIP scientists with shared research interests.
Please send your career updates including new faculty appointments, post-doctoral positions, graduate school/thesis defenses, leadership/committee positions, funded grants, travel/merit awards and publications to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can feature them in the “Trainee Milestones” section. In “Hot Off the AJP Press” section, we are excited to highlight an article on the role of beta-catenin in liver repair by Dr. Michael Thompson that was published in The American Journal of Pathology. Dr. Dani Zander, past chair of the CCDWM, is featured in our question-and-answer segment “Meet the Mentor”.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the ASIP 2011 Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology in Washington, DC this coming April. Everyone is invited to participate in the career development sessions that have been scheduled throughout the meeting. Also, plan to attend the business meeting and visit with the contributors of the trainee newsletter during the ASIP reception for more networking opportunities.
Congratulations to all travel award winners, especially this year’s EPIT and EPIGT awardees Jennifer Brazil and Keli Kolegraff
See you in DC,
