Spring 2017 Meeting Attendees

The RMB-ASM Spring 2017 meeting was held at AlloSource on April 15, 2017.  It was a huge success mostly due to our incredible host, Kevin Wheeler.  The Keynote Lecture, titled "Microbes in Space" was delivered by Dr. Kasthuri Venkateswaran of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology and gave us an amazing insight into the the potential for life beyond  our atmosphere.  As always the highlight of the meeting were our talented students who gave excellent oral and poster presentations.  Congratulations to all the winners!

This year we initiated a student travel scholarship to provide funds for one undergraduate and one graduate student to travel to the ASM Microbe Meeting next summer.  Student award winners from either the Spring 2016 or Fall 2016 branch meetings were eligible to apply.  We received 6 excellent applications which made it difficult for the committee, but we are proud to announce the Winners of the first Rocky Mountain Branch Student Travel Scholarship....
