It was my honor to serve as a judge at the KnockOut Rounds. The session was part of ENDO 2019 in New Orleans, the Endocrine Society’s 101st Annual Meeting. The winners are (left to right): Loize Marechai, Rachel Gonzalez, Juanita Hodax, and Carlos Perez-Kerkvliet. As part of this unique KnockOut format, presenters must describe the big-picture relevance of their research to a general audience in 3 minutes or less and use just one PowerPoint slide. The afternoon session took place on March 23, 2019. Credit: @NIHDirector
