Dear Faculty and Students,

Our 25th year of celebrating Student Achievement is on the horizon! On April 26th we will be graced by a Keynote Address at 10:30 AM delivered by the award winning Xiomei Zhuang who has made pioneering contributions to the use of super resolution microscopy. Her talk is entitled “Illuminating Biology at the Nanoscale and Systems Scale by Imaging”. More information regarding this amazing young scientist can be found at here and here.

Please go to the Russek Day Achievement Day on the GMS website for further information regarding poster abstract submission (deadline April 8) and the annual awards process in your department or degree granting program. I am looking forward to celebrating all of our students’ successes together as we do each year!
