Postdoc Appreciation Week 2017

September 18 through 22, 2017, is National Postdoc Appreciation Week. It’s a time to recognize the significant contributions that postdoctoral fellows make in biomedical research and discovery. In 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives officially recognized the significance of this week-long celebration and since then institutions from across the country and around the world have participated in the annual event.

We’d like to say a big “thank you” to postdocs working at Van Andel Research Institute and in other institutions around the world. Your work plays a vital role in the development of new therapies for diseases like cancer and Parkinson’s, and we are grateful to have you as part of our team!
