Travel Awards for the Molecular Psychiatry Meeting
The 8th Annual Molecular Psychiatry Meeting taking place September 24 -26, 2020 in Maui has been cancelled.
In response to the rapidly changing circumstances associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Molecular Psychiatry Association’s Organizing Board has made the decision to cancel the 8th Annual Meeting scheduled to take place September 24 – 26, 2020 in Maui, Hawaii. In doing so, the Board carefully weighed the risks to attendees and their families, colleagues, and patients. MPA feels strongly that cancelling the conference is the responsible action to take. The health and safety of the attendees are its top priority.
All submitted science will remain on file and will be reviewed for the 2021 meeting.
Travel Award Applications
There are two types of travel awards: (1) for graduate or medical students who are currently enrolled in PhD, MD, or MD/PhD programs and (2) for postdoctoral fellows/medical residents/junior faculty.
For the postdoc/resident/junior faculty level award, applicants must be within 5 years of completing postdoctoral or residency training. Applicants may have a career development award (K-type) but not yet an R-level grant.
Please send your CV or NIH biosketch, a half-page career statement and explanation of why this travel award would be beneficial for you, and one letter of recommendation that also confirms your eligibility (for graduate/medical student award, currently enrolled in PhD, MD, or MD/PhD program; for postdoc/resident/junior faculty award, currently a postdoctoral fellow or resident, or within 5 years of completing training). Preference will be given to those presenting a symposium talk or poster at the meeting.
Only young investigators receiving the awards will be notified in early June 2021. Awards for both types are for $1,500. Part of the monies must be used to register for the meeting.
