SAB NewsGrand Prize Winner Announced in The SAB Mass Spec. Series
Thousands of life scientists from throughout the world contributed to The Science Advisory Board's three recent mass spectrometry studies. An overview of the first study, has been posted in The Science Advisory Board's "Study Snapshot" library, while the analysis of the final two studies is presently being completed. Each study investigated different aspects of present and future use of mass spectrometry in life science research.
For every mass spectrometry study that a Science Advisory Board Member participated in, they were awarded 50 ViewPoints and automatically entered into the drawing to win an iPod Photo personal music player. ViewPoints are part of the Board's Honoraria Program and can be redeemed through The Science Advisory Board's Rewards Catalog.
A SAB Member, serving as a Post-Doctoral fellow at the University of Nebraska Medical Center's Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, was selected as the grand prize winner. A SAB Member since July 2004 and a frequent study participant, the winner, when contacted by phone, exclaimed, "Things like this never happen to me!"
The Science Advisory Board wishes to congratulate everyone who made this study possible.
Each and every time Members participate in SAB-sponsored studies, they earn honoraria in the form of ViewPoints, that can be redeemed for a wide variety of rewards through The Science Advisory Board's "Rewards Catalog."
Moreover, bonus award drawings such as this one are not atypical. For instance, in a study entitled "IT in Genomics Research," every Member who completed the study's questionnaire received 50 ViewPoints and an entry into a drawing to win an Apple iPod. The winner of the Apple iPod was announced on The Science Advisory Board's Web site.

A Note to SAB Members
By failing to keep your SAB Member Profile up-to-date, you miss invitations to other studies for which you would be qualified to participate - - studies that influence the future development of the biomedical technologies you utilize in your research.
You can avoid this dilemma by updating your profile with accurate and complete information, such as your: active e-mail address; current areas of expertise; and the institution where you presently conduct scientific research.
Configure Your Spam Filters Or You'll Miss SAB Invitations
One of the most significant ways that SAB Members fail to earn ViewPoints is through spam filters that inadvertently intercept valuable communications from the Science Advisory Board. To avoid missing invitations to other studies for which you would be qualified to participate, ensure that the following e-mails have been added to your spam filterís list of approved addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (Nate Karle, Online Communications Manager, The Science Advisory Board)
firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (Dr. Tamara Zemlo, Executive Director, The Science Advisory Board)
