Congratulations to XYOAA Travel Award Winners

Dear Xiangya Alumni,
It is our great pleasure to introduce the inaugural XYOAA Student Travel Award winners!
After several weeks of merit review and a series of discussion, the Award Selection Committee selected 11 awardees. Each of these awardees received a certificate and cash prize during the Centennial Xiangya Overseas Celebration (百年湘雅 海外传) held in Ellicott City, Maryland on June 21st, 2014.
There were many outstanding candidates who had done excellent work in their fields. The awardees represent a diverse group from different classes, regions, specialties.  A Ph.D. student, Hong Liu from UT Houston and a postdoctoral fellow, Huihua Li from UPMC Pittsburgh represented the awardees to give oral presentations. Other awardees demonstrated their work with posters. We hope this event will inspire more young alumni in achieving their career goals.
We are so fortunate to have so many talent and highly accomplished alumni within this family. We hope that we will keep connected and look forward to working with each and every one of you in the future.
