“I gave an oral presentation on some of my dissertation work to an audience including scientists I have long admired. Throughout the meeting I also had the opportunity to learn about exciting developments in the field, network and talk science with fellow attendees from all over the world, and attend trainee workshops. The perspective (and ideas!) this meeting gave me on DOHaD and my own work has been immeasurable. Thank you for the support, GSA!”
