Kelly Ronald awarded Yeunkyung Woo Fund travel grant
Biological Sciences graduate student Kelly Ronald, from the laboratories of Jeff Lucas and Esteban Fernandez-Juricic, has been awarded a travel grant from the Yeunkyung Woo Achieve Excellence Travel Scholarship Fund. These awards, granted competitively twice each year, support the travel of graduate students to present their work at scientific meetings. Ronald will present her work on the role of sender and receiver variability in signal production and processing at the 2013 meetings of the Animal Behavior Society in Boulder, CO.
The Yeunkyung Woo Achieve Excellence Travel Scholarship Fund was created in 2002 by the Biological Sciences Department in memory of Yeunkyung Woo, a talented, energetic and well-loved PhD student. Since 2003 the Fund has provided travel support in Yeunkyung's name to 35 graduate students from 26 different laboratories, whose presentations have flown the flag for research in Purdue Biological Sciences.
