Attending the Gordon Research Conference on Glial Biology was a transformative experience. Being holed up in the same conference room with 200 strangers for a week made for great (if not always lucid) interactions, and I left the meeting with an enhanced sense of belonging to the glial community. Even better, I got to show my work to two prospective postdoctoral mentors and secured standing invitations to visit their labs for interviews. I can’t imagine having a more productive week, career-wise, and the GSA travel award really helped to make it happen! Thanks GSA!
