"An Invaluable Opportunity"

Jenni Beer headshot"The SPSP Annual Convention renews your energy and excitement for science. Often times, it takes a long time to complete research projects and discoveries can feel like old news within your lab before you’ve even had a chance to publish them. The SPSP Annual Convention is a chance to talk about your recent discoveries and hear about other people’s recent discoveries. Every year, I return home with renewed enthusiasm to complete projects and begin new ones."

-Jenni Beer, 2017 Convention Committee Chair
University of Texas at Austin

“The annual convention has been an invaluable opportunity to meet face-to-face with collaborators, reconnect with old colleagues (dare I say “friends”!), and germinate new ideas based on what’s coming off the press hot right now in the field.”

-Nicholas Rule, Convention Committee
University of Toronto
