Scientists Supporting Scientists includes session co-chairs, plenary speakers, invited oral platform speakers and all trainees who volunteered to pay their own registration fee. By paying his or her own registration fee, these scientists allowed the conference organizers to redirect funds to directly support other scientists who would not have otherwise been able to attend CEECHE. Because of the Scientists Supporting Scientists initiative we were able to welcome more scientists into the CEECHE community and to ensure scientific representation from many different countries. Thank you for your support.
