Highlights from 2017 Research Awards Gala 

The ASE Foundation hosted the 8th Annual Research Awards Gala at the Hippodrome Theatre in Baltimore, MD, June 3, 2017.  Over 350 guests enjoyed an evening of networking with friends and colleagues while also honoring the ASE award recipients for 2017.  We rolled out the red carpet for all to enjoy a reception on the stage of the beautiful theatre, dinner in a lovely decorated ballroom, and dancing and a nightcap back on the stage to end the evening.
