SfN 2009: Day 1

Up too late hanging out in the hotel restaurant with new friends made on tonight's hellish shuttle ride (the bus driver got lost... it took me about an hour to cover the three miles between the convention center and my hotel). But, I had to blog about this:

A fellow Emory Neuroscience graduate student, Kim Maguschak, was recognized this year with SfN's Next Generation Award for her outreach work. Kim helps to organize the Atlanta chapter of the Society for Neuroscience, including most of the work for our large Brain Awareness Week campaign. Her efforts have helped send practicing scientists (including me!) into hundreds of Atlanta-area public school classrooms to teach kids about neuroscience. Congratulations, Kim!
