Welcome to the October 2016 issue of the ASIP Trainee Newsletter!

ASIP is currently calling for abstracts for the ASIP 2017 Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology, which are due November 17, 2016. The deadline for Trainee Travel Award applications is also November 17, 2016.  

Note:   Because of the later than usual deadline, there will be no extensions for submission of abstracts and travel award applications this year (see the Trainee Award Toolkit listed under Graduate and Postdoctoral Funding Opportunities in this newsletter).
