I am very pleased to announce that due to a generous gift from the Andrew Sabin Family Foundation we will be offering (15) $1,000 Sabin travel grants for students and postdoctoral fellows. The requests will be in the form of a letter from the mentor and CV of the applicant. These should be submitted to Rocky Riviella (  Requests will be reviewed by a committee on a rolling basis (Chris Mack- chair, Alisa Wolberg and Drew Dudley). There will be a limit of one grant per lab. Each recipient will be required to write a short summary of their experiences at the meeting that can be sent to the Sabin Family.
