Sponsored by the Council on Functional Genomics and Translational Biology
Applications are open April 17 - August 9, 2013.
The Council on Functional Genomics and Translational Biology (FGTB) proudly supports and encourages the research efforts of early career investigators and trainees from the United States and abroad. The Council is offering a travel grant to international students and early career members to attend Scientific Sessions 2013 in Dallas, Texas from Nov. 16-20, 2013, to present abstracts. The award will honor accomplished international students and early career investigators while enabling them to get more involved in the AHA and in Scientific Sessions.
All applications must be received through the Council Awards Application System by 5 p.m. Central Standard Time on Aug. 9, 2013. Applicants should apply as early as possible before the deadline to allow time to address any submission issues. Applicants needing to join the AHA should do so by July 31 for the membership to be processed in time to receive the membership number required for the application form.
