Candidate Statement:

I have served the IZFS as a Regional Director for North America as a founding, unelected board member and would be pleased to continue serving another term if elected.  I have been an early advocate for the need for a society to help organize zebrafish researchers worldwide in coordinating and promoting international meetings, and will work hard for measures that build international cooperation. These should include the development of travel awards and scholarships for international travel and research.  I have agreed to serve as the Chair of the Website committee to revamp and improve the Society web site, and will work to build the site as a modern resource for the community.  The formation of the IZFS gives us the opportunity to act as a counterbalance to political trends that close borders by working as an organized community to promote international scientific collaboration.
