Congratulations to Jared Roberts who was just awarded the John Haycock Memorial Travel Award. The award was established to honor John W. Haycock; friend and mentor to many, and an influential scientist.

John’s family has established a memorial graduate student award named for John in the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at UC Irvine. John was a graduate student and received his Ph.D. from UC Irvine before going on to do research and teach at several universities, including The Rockefeller University. The purpose of the John W. Haycock Memorial Graduate Student Travel Award is to provide funding to outstanding graduate students in neuroscience to travel to the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting. This is the most important and informative annual meeting for neuroscientists world-wide, and one that John, himself, greatly enjoyed attending.

Jared will be able to use the award to cover expenses for travel to Washington DC to present his research at the Society for Neuroscience meeting this year. Congrats Jared!
