Who are we?
We are students in Dr. Jellyman's research lab. We study the developmental origins of adult and health and disease.
How can you help?
We are raising money for travel to the 71st annual meeting of the Society for Reproductive Investigation so that we can present our research findings and meet with potential graduate school mentors.
Why this conference?
The mission of the Society for Reproductive Investigation (SRI) is to advance reproductive and women's health care through (1) outstanding basic, translational, and clinical science, (2) training and mentoring future generations of investigators, and (3) promoting women's health globally. The SRI has more than 1,000 members worldwide, ~one-third of whom are basic scientists and two-thirds are clinical investigators conducting basic, translational, and clinical investigation in the reproductive sciences and women's health. As such, the annual meeting of the society is the best conference to present our research.
What are the benefits for students?
In addition to presenting our work and attending cutting edge scientific sessions, the meeting will include numerous career development activities including Early Career Development Workshops and a Connection Corners networking event for young scientists. We will have the opportunity to connect with academic and clinical researchers, many of whom may be looking for PhD candidates for their labs.
