Congratulations to Amelia MacRae who is the winner of  the 2017 Diane Minshall Memorial Award. The annual award, in honour of the late animal technician and manager, is offered to a UBC student, graduate student, post-doctoral fellow, staff, researcher or technician involved in the study and care of animals used in research. These funds are to be used for the support of travel/attendance at a meeting, conference, workshop or training opportunity.
