Family Support Awards

Elsevier Family Support Awards

We are excited to announce that Elsevier has provided funds to help supplement the costs related to childcare responsibilities for early-career researchers attending our 2018 Cell Symposia. We understand that, in both academia and industry, the years following the completion of a doctoral degree are critical for exposure, recognition, and networking in order to secure or maintain a position. For many scientists, these years also coincide with starting a family, making it difficult to achieve a work-life balance and embrace one’s career objectives. Up to $500 per award will be granted to students, postdocs, and/or young investigators (within your first 5 years). Delegates with accepted abstracts are eligible for this award (awarded on a first come first serve basis).

Please contact: (Please do not email credit card information under any circumstances) to receive an application form..

Travel Scholarships

Elsevier Family Support Awards

50 travel scholarships worth $US500 (EU) or $US1000 (US) will be granted to outstanding PhD students in their final years and early post-doctoral fellows (less than three years science obtaining a PhD degree) based on competitive track record in the fields of systems biology, microbiome, immunology, genomics, computer science, and physics. Interdisciplinary research integrating these fields is a plus.
