The Genetics Society of America announces DeLill Nasser Travel Award recipients
Date:1/19/2010

The Genetics Society of America is pleased to announce the six recipients of the 2010 DeLill Nasser Awards for Professional Development in Genetics. These travel grants are given to young geneticists to attend national and international meetings or enroll in laboratory courses.

These awards are named in honor of DeLill Nasser (1929-2000), who was instrumental in promoting genetics research, championing the genome sequencing of Arabidopsis and research in Drosophila during her 22 years with the National Science Foundation. She was particularly supportive of young scientists, those at the beginning of their careers, and those trying to open new areas of genetic inquiry.

The six recipients of the 2010 DeLill Nasser Awards are:

  • Erkan Buzbas, University of Michigan, who will use the award to attend the 60th American Society of Human Genetics Meeting in Washington, D.C., November 2-6, 2010.
  • Bryce Daines, Baylor College of Medicine, who will use the award to attend the 51st Drosophila Research Conference in Washington, D.C., April 7-11, 2010.
  • Marc Erhardt, University of Utah, who will use his award to attend the Gordon Research Conference, "Sensory Transduction in Microorganisms" in Ventura, CA, January 24-29, 2010.
  • Diane Genereux, University of Washington, Seattle, who will use the award to attend the Developmental Origins and Epigenesis in Human Health and Disease (D1) meeting in Singapore, April 26-30, 2010.
  • Te-Wen Lo, University of California-Berkeley, who will use the award to attend the Evolutionary Biology of Caenorhabditis and Other Nematodes meeting at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridge, United Kingdom, June 5-8, 2010.
  • Rebecca Shapiro, University of Toronto, who will use her award to attend the Gordon Research Conference, "Cellular and Molecular Fungal Biology" in Holderness, NH, June 13-18, 2010.
