Virtual ICPA 2020
Thank you for all those who attended the Virtual ICPA 2020 webinar. This was ISPA's first-ever online webinar, and we hope the success of the presentations will encourage even more members to join us in any future online collaboration events.
We would like to again thank our keynote speaker, Dr. David Lamb, for his presentation and participation at such a late hour. The presentation provided ample engagement from our participants during the Q&A session. Our congratulations go out to the winners of the Pierre C. Robert Scientist Awards, Dr. Joe Luck receiving the 2020 Young Scientist Award, and to Dr. James Schepers, winner of the 2020 Senior Scientist Award. This was indeed a difficult year to select from our superbly qualified field of nominees.
We would also like to welcome in our newly elected Leadership Team: Dr. Ruth Kerry - Treasurer; Dr. Athyna Cambouris - Secretary; Dr. John Fulton - President-Elect. We are pleased to have these new leaders join our officers and know they will help make the ISPA society even greater.
As our current Past-President, Dr. Nicolas Tremblay, leaves his position, we presented him with the Honorary Life Fellow of the Society award, a well-deserved honor. Our current President, Dr. Ian Yule, bid a fond farewell to his position and is taking up his role as Past-President. Finally, we welcome in our new ISPA President, Dr. Jess Lowenberg-DeBoer. We look forward to your tenure in leadership.
