We are happy to announce the launch of the Core Center for Musculoskeletal Biology & Medicine (CCMBM) Junior Investigator Travel Award Program. The goal of this new funding opportunity is to support trainees’ attendance to conferences that will further their career goals. The award is particularly designed to encourage travel to a conference where the trainee may not be presenting an abstract, but where interactions with other attendees and participation in conference activities can serve as a springboard for trainees to transition to the next stages in their scientific careers. 

Apply online here - no later than May 1, 2019.


Restrictions: Travel awards may only be used to cover economy airfare for up to $400 per award, for travel occurring before June 15. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come basis with final application deadline on May 1st. 

Eligibility: All postdoctoral fellows and graduate students who are members of the CCMBM are eligible for this award. If you are not a member but are interested in joining, please visit the membership page and follow the appropriate instructions for Student Membership or Associate Membership (for postdoctoral fellows).

If you have questions about this program, please email Jonathan Brunger, Chair of Junior Investigator Committee.
