ISBER News Editor
ISBER News has been feeling the loss of our previous Assistant Editor, Angela Notah-Chavez, who recently resigned to focus on her studies, her job (now outside biobanking), and her passion: volunteering for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Our loss is the gain of shelters and abused animals everywhere. I enjoyed working with Angela tremendously, as have many of you who have collaborated with her to produce stories for the ISBER News.
Angela came to us as a biobanker at the University of New Mexico’s Human Tissue Repository and wrote a profile on it as her first article for ISBER News. Angela has since moved to Vancouver, BC where she currently lives her busy and productive life.
ISBER News is excited to announce that we have once again dipped (by sheer coincidence) into the Southwestern United States to find exceptional talent to help keep the blog the go-to place for ISBER news and biobanking developments across the globe. Cathy Seiler, Program Manager at the Biobank Core Facility at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, has recently accepted an invitation from this editor and the ISBER Publications Committee to serve as our Assistant Editor, beginning immediately.
Let me now put on my best (The) Simpson’s voice to say that you may remember Cathy from such articles as “Have You Joined The ISBER Social Network? Facebook” and “Cancer vs. Tumor: What’s the Difference?“- the latter from her “www.thingsitellmymom.com” blog. Or you may have had the pleasure of working with her on the Marketing and Membership committee, or saw caught one of her many presentations at the a recent ISBER meeting.
The ISBER News is thrilled to have a person of Cathy’s stature join the team.
