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, graduates, 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, Cell Bio 2020 Virtual will take place online December 2–16. While our awards typically support the travel of researchers to the in-person meeting, we are pleased to increase the number of awards and to support the participation of more researchers at the Cell Bio 2020 Virtual meeting.
