Our research analyst, Tracy Heung, was one of two recipients of the Junior Investigator Award for the most outstanding presentation by a junior faculty member at The 11th Biennial International 22q11.2 Conference in Whistler, BC, in July, 2018. Tracy's presentation was titled "Predictors of All-Cause Mortality in Adults with 22q11.2DS". Our graduate student, Ania Fiksinski, received the same award in 2016. She presented the award to Tracy this year.
