Symposium Honors Female FARE Winners
Each year, the NIH women scientist advisory committee selects two or three female winners of the Fellows Award for Research Excellence (FARE) to be honored as WSA Scholars for their outstanding scientific research. To honor the WSA FARE winners, a symposium will be held on Monday, Feb. 29 at 2:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall, Bldg. 1. Each scholar will present her work and the talks will be followed by a reception. All are invited to attend.
The 2016 WSA FARE winners and their topics are:
Dr. Sigal Shachar, “Systematic identification of genome positioning factors by high-throughput screening”
