Summary: In our recent board meeting, many board members supported the idea of using the IABMR Discussion Forum for the following suggested purposes:

Career Resource: Position open, seeking jobs

Expertise Resource: Ask questions how to do an experiment..a protocol; share your experience and tips; this is a good way to find collaborators

Members Lounge: A place to introduce yourself and introduce for other members; share personal news among members such as relocation, promotion, new jobs, baby news etc.

Publication: Announcement of members' recent publications. This could potentially increase the opportunity colloboration.

  IABMR business card design - we need your opinion
 Jan 24, 2005 by: admin

In our last board meeting, Jake made a suggestion of using IABMR business cards. I have designed some templates as below. If you have any comment or suggestion on the design, please join the discussion at our Discussion Forum.

Design A - Front with top logo and watermark logo in blue text:

Design A - Optional Back with watermark logo in blue text::

Design B - Front with top logo and watermark logo in red text:

Design B - Optional Back with watermark logo in red text::

Due to the limitation of IABMR budget, individual members have to pay for their own business cards. However we will provide the design template for free. If you would like to have your own IABMR business cards, please send a request to George Chen (tchen@forsyth.org) with your personal information to be included (e.g., your name, title, contact info etc) and i will paste it into the design and either send you a graphic file that you can use to order by yourself at any business card design company (e.g., OvernightPrints.com ); or I'll be happy to place the order for you (in this case you can pay through IABMR's online payment system - PayPal). Remember this is just a proposal and you are not obligated to do so.

  Poster competition awardees and their posters
 Dec 14, 2004 by: admin
Summary: As a part of the program of the IABMR annual meeting of December 2nd, there was a fantastic poster competition with participants from different institutions of the Boston area. The first prize (a digital camera donated by Optical Analysis Corp.) was given to Dr. Xinsheng Zhu from Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His poster showed that the over-expression of the calcium-binding protein sorcin improves cardiac excitation-contraction coupling in normal and failing ventricular cardiomyocytes. Dr. Zhu’s poster was impressive not only for the high scientific quality of the data but also for its great organization and presentation. The second prize ($100) was given to Dr. Yumei Zhang from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Her poster showed through convincing animal experiments, immunohystochemistry and reporter assays that Ets-1 is a critical transcriptional mediator of Angiotensin II-induced vascular inflammation and remodeling. Third prizes ($50) were given to posters presented by Drs. Wei Chen and Yucheng Wang from the Forsyth Institute. Dr. Wang’s poster was about the generation of an osteoclast specific cre transgenic mouse that can be used to generate osteoclast gene conditional knock-outs. Dr. Chen’s poster on the other hand, demonstrated through animal studies and recordings of muscle and heart functions that haploinsufficiency of ZNF9 is the cause of myotonic dystrophy type 2, one of the most common forms of muscular dystrophy in adults.
