“The Enrichment Record” announces the establishment of the Enrichment Rising Star Award. Supported by the New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research, the Award is designed to recognize highly motivated young researchers in the forefront of this emerging field.

Letters of interest are being solicited from college and graduate students or Post-Docs actively doing research into any aspect of environmental enrichment for laboratory animals. A panel of experts will select the first recipients of the Enrichment Rising Star award, who will receive $500 cash and expenses
associated with participating in the 4th Annual Enrichment Extravaganza (EE) on June 13, 2011 in Atlantic City NJ. This all-day event offers technicians, lab animal veterinarians and enrichment coordinators from the mid-Atlantic Research Region a morning of lectures and poster presentations, a special topic luncheon, and 8 breakout sessions in the afternoon.

Interested candidates are encouraged to submit a letter of interest signed by their academic advisor that briefly describes their research to:
