A special ‘Thank You’ to all of you who participated in the INBRE Logo Contest. Who knew we had such a talented group of artists! We truly appreciate each and every one of you who took the time from your busy schedule to create some very unique and imaginative designs. The committee was impressed with the submissions overall, which really took the program’s key concepts to heart. So, as you can imagine, it was difficult to choose just one. With that being said….

Congratulations to
~ Diana Le ~
INBRE Student from Leeward Community College

As the winner of the INBRE Logo Contest, Diana will receive an award at the INBRE Program Meeting on April 26, 2019. Together with her design, skillset in Adobe Illustrator, and collaboration with the INBRE Logo Committee, we are very excited to share the new INBRE logo with all of you.

The new logo is available in two formats: Portrait (text on bottom) and Landscape (text on right). If you are planning to present in this year’s Biomedical Symposium, please contact us at inbre@hawaii.edu to obtain the logo files. As a reminder, the poster printing deadline to UH Manoa PBRC is Friday, April 19, 2019.

INBRE students, Michael Fernandez and Jovikka Antallan, each received travel support and the opportunity to present their research at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students held in early November in Arizona. On top of that, while attending the conference, they earned “Outstanding Presentation” awards. Several hundred microbiology students nationwide competed for the awards, but fewer than two dozen won the “Outstanding Presentation” designation. Read more here.
