Two educational workshops held

As a result of the IGERT grant, we held two educational workshops. The first brought together faculty and students from our partner program at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) with IGERT faculty and students at GW to discuss lab techniques and approaches at JHU and GW. This workshop has catalyzed a cross-fertilization of approaches from disciplines at both institutions, with students from both programs arranging lab rotations in the partner program to gain training in new approaches. The second workshop brought a dozen experts, and PhD students, from other institutions across the US to GW to discuss and demonstrate methodological techniques in Feeding Ecology, with the goal of stimulating new research on the evolution of human diet, one of our three IGERT research themes.
