What a great conference!  The eighth annual VIVO Conference was held at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City, August 2-4.  We had outstanding keynote presentations by Christina Pattuelli and Jodi Schneider, invited talks by Katy Frey, Jim Hendler, Dave Eichmann, Ying Ding, and Rebecca Bryant, as well as a featured presentation by Julia Trimmer and Damaris Murry.  But there was quite a bit more – five workshops, 27 contributed presentations, and sixteen posters rounded out a very full program.  Thanks to all the presenters!!
