Preparing for IFPA

In September 2016 the International Federation of Placenta Assocations (IFPA) meeting was in lovely Portland, Oregon. To prepare for the meeting, the lab (in part) plus collaborator Alex B. hit the mountain trails in Central Oregon. What could be more inspiring than breathing in the mountain air, listening to some folk music in nearby Sisters and enjoying dinners in the forest?

Clearly our prep work was successful as Sam Wilson won the Elsevier Trophoblast Research New Investigator Award for the best Poster Presentation by a New Investigator at the IFPA meeting and is now invited to give an oral presentation at next years meeting in Manchester England!
