The trainees, ranging from PhD students to postdoctoral researchers, were among 21 individuals from around the U.S. who earned the highest scores among abstracts accepted for presentation at ASCPT’s annual conference.
Awardees will first be honored during ASCPT’s Network and Community Experience from January 10–14, 2022.
