On March 31, 2005, the TIRF Board of Trustees hosted a breakfast in San Antonio, Texas, honoring TIRF’s supporters, reviewers, and grant recipients. The guest of honor was long-term TIRF Board member and donor Joan Morley, Professor Emerita from the University of Michigan.
After welcome remarks from TIRF Chair, Neil Anderson, Diane Larsen-Freeman honored Joan Morley and talked about “Why I Give to TIRF”. Patsy Duff, Chair of the Research Advisory Committee, introduced the grant recipients, and recent TIRF initiatives were discussed by trustees Yehia El-Ezabi and Mike McCarthy.
TIRF gratefully acknowledges the support of Alta Books of California, which provided funding to support this event. Funds from a Spencer Foundation grant also supported TIRF’s continuing efforts to build networking opportunities for researchers and graduate students in our field.
