For being awarded their PhD
Travis received a prestigious Genetics Society of America DeLill NasserAward:
These awards support early career researchers to attend conferences and are awarded based on excellence in genetics research. Travis will use this to attend and present at the 2015 Annual Drosophila Research Conference in Chicago.
Travis was awarded an ARC DECRA Fellowship in November 2014.
The Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) scheme is a separate element of the Discovery Program. The DECRA scheme will provide more focused support for researchers and create more opportunities for early-career researchers in both teaching and research, and research-only positions.
Congratulations Lauren and Katherine for being given the opportunity to present talks at the 2015 Annual Drosophila Conference.
