    Two PhD students at Institut Cochin received a Trainee Award from the Society for Leukocyte Biology

    The Society for Leukocyte Biology (SLB) is proud to sponsor the signature Ambassador program.

     

    This program fosters collaboration and growth of the scientific community via trainee awards.  Awards are given by society Ambassadors in recognition of trainees' meritorious work in the lab. Thus, Isabel Gomez et Rodrigo Formiga have been awarded by Véronique Witko-Sarsat who is a member of SLB committees (Membership committee, Nominating Committee) and Ambassador.

    Trainee Awards include a complimentary membership in the society, the possibility to obtain travel grants and diverse Awards corresponding to different achievements in the scientific career.  Being part of an international society like SLB presents an opportunity for professional development including a platform to present research and connect with other investigators. So many reasons for doctoral students to get involved in this society!
