    33 Young Investigators Receive Travel Awards

    Thirty-three young investigators have been chosen to receive travel awards to help defray costs of attending the 35th annual meeting in New York this Summer. Click here for the list.


    The American Society for Neurochemistry provides scholarships for young neuroscientists from Latin American countries. These awards provide $2,000 in travel expenses to attend the 35th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Neurochemistry in New York City, along with the visit, for a period not shorter than one additional week, to an established neuroscience laboratory in North America. The ASN hopes that these awards will foster mentoring relationships, to teach young scientists new techniques, and to share and encourage new ideas and approaches to neurochemical problems. Congratulations to this year's awardees. more>>>
