    For the second year in a row, FOR NYU Postdocs participated in the annual National Postdoc Association (NPA) meeting, which took place in Grand Rapids, MI, from March 4th-6th 2016. We presented the poster “1st NYU PoIntS: An initiative to connect postdocs in a multi campus, metropolitan university” with very good reception from attendees and organizers. We also co-organized the workshop “Creating policy-focused regional symposia for grassroots advocacy” with postdocs from FOR Boston and FOR Chicago. FOR NYUP would like to extend their congratulations to Kyle Dolan from FOR Chicago for winning the 1st poster prize. We would like to thank Christine Ponder and the NYU Office of Postdoctoral Affairs for sponsoring our participation.

Future of Research, the postdoc-driven national organization that NYUP belongs to, was awarded Science Careers' "Person of the Year" award . We are very excited about the prospects that this formal acknowledgment of our efforts -and the efforts of postdocs all over the country- will bring to improving our working conditions, professional opportunities and scientific prowess. All this of course, is only feasible with the continuing engagement of postdocs to matters that are not strictly and narrowly limited to our individual research goals.
