Welcome to the August 2013 issue!

The ASIP Trainee Newsletter is proudly sponsored by the American Society for Investigative Pathology and the ASIP Committee for Career Development, Women, and Minorities.

The ASIP 2013 Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology 2013 was fantastic and it was especially nice to see so many of you in attendance. Beginning with this issue, our Feature Article will highlight the speakers from the Career Development Workshop and Breakfast: Non-Traditional Career Opportunities in Pathology session held during the ASIP Annual Meeting. Our first feature is Dr. Cherié Butts who is an Associate Director of Immunology at Biogen Idec. In the feature article, Cherié shares her personal experience in working in the government research arena as an NIH fellow and transitioning to industry.

Visit the Trainee Milestones section to learn about the recent accomplishments of our trainee members. Congratulations to Prince Awuah on his recent publication in The American Journal of Pathology. The article titled Role and Regulation of PDGFRα Signaling in Liver Development and Regeneration is our Hot off the Press feature. We have updated our graduate and postdoctoral funding opportunities page to include several new opportunities for grant support and fellowships, so be sure to take a look.

This year we celebrate 100 years of ASIP. Let us ensure another 100 years of a vibrant and productive Society by encouraging our friends and colleagues to become members. We also invite you to become involved with the trainee newsletter, or one of our many committees, and scientific interest groups.

Have a productive fall!

Cindy and Kari
