IGERT Annual Meeting in Washington DC
by IGERT Trainee Heather King
Trainees, PIs, and administrators from IGERT programs across the country gathered in Washington, DC, from May 23rd to 25th at the IGERT annual meeting. Principle investigator Melina Hale, administrator Carolyn Johnson, and trainee Heather King represented the Moto-IGERT, with Ms. King presenting her poster "Can Fish Walk? Bipedal Locomotion in the African Lungfish." Among the topics presented and discussed during meeting sessions were ethics in research, the influence of upcoming technologies on science, career paths for trainees, and ways to improve the IGERT program. The meeting proved to be a wonderful opportunity to learn and network, and we look forward to attending again next year!
