Student Travel Fellowships Yearbook

In the past 12 months ISCB has helped fund 10 students to attend ECCB in Madrid, 8 students to attend PSB in Maui, and 4 students to attend RECOMB in Venice. All 22 of these travel fellowships were made possible by ISCB membership dues and generous member donations. In addition to funds for these conferences, ISCB secures annual grant funding to help as many as 90 students attend the annual ISMB conference each year. Please consider making a donation to the travel fellowships fund via the online donation form (see related article in this newsletter), or the next time you renew your ISCB membership. The next generation of bioinformaticians benefits greatly from exposure at these well organized, international conferences.

ECCB 2006 Travel Fellowship recipient, Amel Louhichi of Tunisia, is all smiles as she collects her check. Nine additional students were also awarded fellowships to this conference.
