HEI 2020 Travel Awardees to present in December 3 webinar

November 2020

HEI is excited to be able to showcase the HEI 2020 Travel Awardees’ work in a webinar on December 3rd from 3 pm to 4:30 pm EST.


Each year, HEI invites abstract submissions from students or postdocs and then sponsors travel for several award winners to our Annual Conference to present posters detailing their latest research. While HEI hosted a series of webinars in lieu of our Annual Conference in response to the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year, we were unable to feature the work of our 2020 Student and Postdoc Travel Award winners. We are happy to announce a separate Travel Awardee webinar, which is open to the public.


Congratulations to the following winners of the HEI Travel Award 2020:


Farnaz Fouladi, PhD, University of North Carolina, Charlotte | Air Pollution Exposure is Associated with the Gut Microbiome as Revealed by Shotgun Metagenomic Sequencing | Abstract
