ISEH 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting - Final Thoughts

Before writing the ISEH 2021 Virtual Scientific Meeting recap, we had a quick read-through of last year’s summary. One year ago, we were hoping that our first virtual ISEH meeting would also be our last. We couldn’t wait to see each other again in person, and this is still the case.

ISEH 2021 New Investigator Awards

Our society takes great pride in supporting the work of young scientists who submit cutting-edge abstracts for discussion at the ISEH Annual Meeting. To this end, each year ISEH includes a New Investigator Session in which the Program Committee selects the six highest ranked abstracts to present an oral presentation along with a five minute Q&A. Presenters were reviewed by an anonymous panel of judges on the following criteria: presentation topic, presentation content, Q&A response, and overall presentation. The session awards prizes into two groups – student and postdoctoral fellow, with three prizes being awarded in each category. Congratulations to our 2021 New Investigator Award Winners!
