Education Achievements

Trainees publish and participate in conferences

As a group, the pace of trainee publications and participation in major conferences has increased significantly last year, i.e. August 2008 - July 2009. Publications in refereed journals have increased from one in 2008 to four in the first half of 2009. Similarly, trainee research presentations at major conferences have increased from four in 2007 to seven in 2008 and will likely continue to increase during 2009. These positive trends are based on publications or presentations in which a trainee is either first or second author and demonstrate a strong trend in the education and maturation of trainees in our IGERT program.
