Special Thanks to the ESCOM Science Foundation

ESCOM Science Foundation, founded by Dr. Bert L. Schram and Mrs. Dr. Elizabeth A. Schram, has kindly sponsored three awards to be given to the top three outstanding oral presentations given by young investigators. In addition, the Foundation also sponsors the Schram Young Scientists Lunch and Mixer. The American Peptide Society acknowledges this generous contribution, which supports the development and promotion of young aspiring researchers in peptide science.
