Jane Warren Trainee Conference Award recipients announced


HEI is excited to showcase the work of the 2022 Jane Warren Trainee Conference Award winners at the Annual Conference in Washington D.C., taking place June 26-28, 2022.

Each year, HEI invites abstract submissions from graduate students and postdocs, and sponsors travel for several award winners to our Annual Conference.  Awardees are invited to present posters detailing their latest research. This year, applicants submitted abstracts to one of two tracks – one for applicants from institutions in the greater District of Columbia (U.S.) area and one for applicants from any institution in North America or Europe.

The award is presented in remembrance of Jane Warren, who joined HEI in the 1980s and served as the Director of Science from 1999 until her retirement in 2008.
