The Society for In Vitro Biology has established several initiatives to support the professional development of our student members. These initiatives include: free registration at the annual meeting with an accepted abstract, travel awards, research presentation competitions, direct involvement with committees and program planning, and the inclusion of sessions at our annual meeting that promote student professional development. In the next several issues of the In Vitro Report we will include testimonials from students who have benefited from the student initiatives. Please remember that these student initiatives are possible due to the generous financial support of our membership. If you would like to help support the professional development of our student members, please use the following link to make a donation.
Sachiko Yamasaki, 2011 SIVB Student Travel Award Winner
I have received a valuable experience by participating in SIVB. Attending the meeting was a valuable experience, and I benefited from talking with scientists both in my specific area of research and also in other areas of research. It was a valuable experience for me to attend an SIVB annual meeting. I would like to make use of the knowledge learned for future study. I am most grateful to the SIVB member for giving me a wonderful chance.
