As in past years, members of the VMR Institute staff and students were chosen to present their work and research at the prestigious conference.
Technician and Research Assistant, Kenneth Yee was picked to give a paper presentation on novel data collected at the VMR Institute in conjunction with the University of Washington in St. Louis and the University of Amsterdam.
