Symposium Named For Ellen Potter

Nearly 100 science teachers attended the inaugural “Ellen Potter Research Connections for Teachers Symposium” at the Institute this fall in honor of Salk’s retiring Education Outreach director. The meeting for middle and high school teachers featured Salk scientists describing the latest trends in biological research on topics including cancer, diabetes and epigenetics. Potter retired in December after 38 years at the Institute, beginning as a research assistant in the Regulatory Biology Lab.
