A leader in the lab learns more about being a leader in the science community

Postdoc Miguel Reyes headed to Washington DC earlier this week to participate in in the¬†Linton-Poodry SACNAS Leadership Institute. This is a well-deserved honor, and an exciting opportunity for Miguel. Only one problem: he has to wear a suit… in the summer… in Washington, DC!

Here is a description of the program:¬†“The Linton-Poodry SACNAS Leadership Institute (LPSLI) provides premier training for motivated underrepresented minority (URM) scientists, laying the foundation for them to lead institutional transformation. In collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the LPSLI is an intensive five-day course featuring small group exercises, keynote speakers, leadership development planning, networking opportunities, and extensive community building among selected participants.”
