In This Issue – 50.4 President’s Report 2017 In Vitro Biology Meeting Update Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Young Scientist Award Call for 2017 Nominations Student Awards Plant Biotechnology Student Oral Presentation Competition Editor’s Corner Membership Matters Member News Journal Highlights Growing interest in assay development for high-throughput screening and lead discovery among government, academic, and industry researchers has been addressed by the introduction of assay guidance workshops led by AGM editors, which emphasize a broad range of critical concepts from the AGM. This was recently highlighted in an article by Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) Director of Education, Steve Hamilton, called “Effective Drug Discovery Begins with the Right Assay” (http://www.slas.org/eln/effective-drug-discovery-begins-with-the-right-assay/). The next workshop (http://www.slas2017.org/program/assay-guidance.cfm) will be held in Washington DC at SLAS2017 on Saturday February 4, 2017. Many of the instructors have 20-30 years of experience in the field of drug discovery. The workshop will be a valuable resource for laboratory scientists who are planning or beginning to develop test methods for high or low throughput screening that are amenable to automation using appropriate statistical and operational concepts. The workshop will also be useful for early career researchers and experienced investigators who wish to learn about the latest assay concepts for HTS and lead optimization. The Assay Guidance Manual (AGM) (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK53196/), is an eBook hosted by the National Library of Medicine that is dedicated to best practices...

Elena Arthur I really enjoyed attending the Society for In Vitro Biology’s World Congress last year. My PI was a speaker at the conference and invited me to accompany him because he felt it would be a great opportunity to present my research. At the conference, I was immediately impressed by the high premium the society places on the development of students. As a Ph. D. candidate,...
