Congratulations to Yichao Rui (Research Associate with Matt Ruark’s Lab). Yichao recently received the Best Presentation Award (1st place) at the 2nd Annual UW-Madison Postdoctoral Research Symposium that was held on Friday, September 22. This symposium is a venue for postdocs to share their work with others and foster new collaborations. New to this year’s symposium was the 5-minute blitz talk competition. Fifty abstracts were received for this competition; 16 of the abstracts were selected to be presented during the symposium. As the 1st place winner, Yichao received a travel grant to attend a future conference of his choosing.
