Congratulations to Mike on winning the LSU Biological Sciences McDaniel Travel Award! 1000 clams goes a long way! Some notes on this memorial award, from the LSU Graduate Student Awards website:
“The McDaniel Travel Award is a competitive award that memoralizes Michael McDaniel, a promising graduate student who died tragically in the second year of his PhD program. Established by his family and given semi-annually the award funds travel expenses for graduate students to attend national or international meetings in the Biological Sciences and to present a paper or poster on the graduate research of the students.”
Mike will use this prestigious award to help him present at #ISME17 in Leipzig, Germany.
