FGTB Travel Awards for Young Investigators

Sponsored by the Council on Functional Genomics and Translational Biology

The FGTB Travel Awards for Young Investigators encourage and support the efforts of early career investigators in cardiovascular research and encourage participation in FGTB and AHA activities by providing travel funds to attend the ATVB|PVD 2018 Scientific Sessions, present research in oral or poster format, and engage in discussion with senior investigators.

  • Be a member of the Council on Functional Genomics and Translational Biology (membership number required to complete award application).
  • Be working in any area of research concerned with functional genomics/translational biology.
  • Be in training as an undergraduate or predoctoral student, or a fellow who has completed training only within the last 5 years, or a PhD/MD in the first 5 years after faculty appointment.
  • Be accepted for oral or poster presentation at ATVB|PVD 2018.
  • Applicants may apply for a travel award multiple times with different abstracts, as long as the applicant is the presenting author on each abstract. However, an applicant is eligible to receive only one award, even if multiple abstracts are accepted.

  • There are no citizenship requirements.

Prize

Several awards ($1,000 each) for conference travel will be made to new investigators in training, ie, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
