Date:1/3/2013

BETHESDA, MD January 3, 2013 The Genetics Society of America (GSA) is pleased to announce the selection of 10 early career researchers five graduate students and five postdoctoral researchers as recipients of a Spring 2013 DeLill Nasser Award for Professional Development in Genetics. The award is a $1,000 travel grant for each researcher to attend any national or international meeting, conference or laboratory course that will enhance his or her career.

"Each round, the review committee has a tough job selecting the most deserving applicants from among the many strong applications," said Adam Fagen, PhD, Executive Director. "These 10 recipients represent just a small sample of the excellence found among grad students and postdocs in our community, ensuring a strong future for the field of genetics."

The DeLill Nasser Award was established by GSA in 2001 to honor its namesake, DeLill Nasser (1929-2000), a long-time GSA member who provided critical support to many early career researchers during her 22 years as program director in eukaryotic genetics at the National Science Foundation. Since the formation of this award, nearly 100 graduate students and postdocs have received funding for travel to further their career goals and enhance their education. The program is supported by GSA, and with charitable donations from members of the genetics community.

The 10 recipients of the spring 2013 DeLill Nasser Awards, their institutions and the conference or lab course each intends to attend are listed below.
