Alan Hall and Norton B. Gilula Awards
To support the next generation of researchers, JCB provides the Alan Hall and Norton B. Gilula Awards that allow undergraduates, graduate, and early-career postdocs to attend Cell Bio, an annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). This year, we offered two awards of up to $1,000 USD each to attend Cell Bio 2023, December 2–6 in Boston, MA.
Alan Hall Awards
Established in memory of Alan Hall, former JCB Editor-in-Chief. Open to outstanding graduate students, and first year postdocs whose work being presented at Cell Bio was performed while a PhD or MD/PhD student, who excelled in their research as trainees. One winner will be presented with a certificate during the meeting and receive reimbursement for registration and travel to Cell Bio 2023, up to $1,000 USD.

2023 Award Recipients
Dr. Jessica Moore recently completed her PhD training in the lab of Dr. Valentina Greco at Yale University School of Medicine. In her thesis work, she uncovered cellular and molecular regulators of calcium signaling within the stem cell pool of the skin epidermis. Jess recently joined Dr. Çagla Eroglu’s lab at Duke University as a postdoctoral researcher and is investigating the crosstalk between astrocytes and the vasculature during brain development.
Brady Goulden grew up in a small rural farming town near Gettysburg Pennsylvania and left his hometown to study Biology at Penn State in 2012. After graduating in 2016, he joined the laboratory of Gerry Hammond at the University of Pittsburgh where he gained a love for microscopy and membrane signaling. Following this passion, he joined the BCMB PhD program in 2018 at Johns Hopkins University, where he currently has been studying lipid signaling during membrane trafficking at neuronal synapses with Shigeki Watanabe.
