11 undergraduates win travel awards to present research at fruit fly conference
Date:12/2/2013

BETHESDA, MD (December 2, 2013) -- The Genetics Society of America (GSA) and the Drosophila research community are pleased to announce the winners of the Victoria Finnerty Undergraduate Travel Awards. The awards will be used by the students to attend the 55th Annual Drosophila Research Conference in San Diego, March 2630, 2014. These 11 recipients are college juniors, seniors, or post-baccalaureates conducting academic research using the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster as a model organism.

For most of the recipients, the 2014 Drosophila Research Conference will be their first opportunity to participate in an international professional scientific research conference. The Finnerty Award winners will be presenting their research to more than 1,500 other undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, university faculty and others.

"A fundamental part of science is the presentation of one's work to fellow scientists. This travel award enhances the research experience of undergraduates by giving them the opportunity to present their work at the annual Drosophila Research Conference," said Helen Salz, PhD, Chair of the Finnerty Award review committee and a professor at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. "It was inspiring to read these applications. The number of extraordinary undergraduates conducting significant research far exceeded the number of awards we had available," said Dr. Salz.

Adam Fagen, PhD, Executive Director of GSA, added, "We look forward to the opportunity these talented undergraduates will have to present their research to an international audience at the Drosophila Research Conference and we hope to hear much more from them at scientific conferences in the years to come."

The Victoria Finnerty Undergraduate Travel Awards were established in 2011 in memory of its namesake, who was a long-time GSA member, a dedicated undergraduate educator at Emory University for 35
