Echinawards

Echi

 Beginning in 2011, student members of the Allen Lab became eligible for a prestigious new award: the Echinaward, or Echi for short. 

Echi's are awarded to students who have achieved a particular honor, fellowship or award directly related to their work in the lab. 

The first ever recipient of an Echi is also the lab's first member: Frances Armstong!
