Travel Grants

MSB 2019 particularly welcomes young researchers and encourages their participation in the symposium by featuring:

  • A low student registration fee which includes symposium admission, lunches, dinners, receptions and an all-delegate excursion.
  • A double-blind abstract review procedure providing equal chances for acceptance to the oral program, regardless of reputation and seniority.
  • Selected posters invited to give 3-min poster pitches
  • Several poster awards.
  • Four stimulating and highly informative short courses at the start of the symposium, providing one-stop in-depth tutorials on topical subjects.

To further enable active participation of students and post-docs, CASSS will provide a limited number of travel grants for PhD candidates or academic post-docs presenting posters or talks at the MSB symposium in Corvallis, Oregon, USA. The successful candidates should be working in a discipline applicable to biopharmaceutical sciences, including protein and nucleic acid therapeutics, vaccines, cell therapy, and gene therapy, etc, – as well as the application of chromatographic and electrophoretic separation methods within the field.

Interested candidates may apply by completing a request here CASSS Travel Grant Request. Candidates must submit a letter requesting consideration for the grant, a letter of recommendation from an advisor, proof of studentship/post-doc status, proof of submission of your abstract for a poster or oral presentation and a PDF of your submitted abstract. The applicant should be the first author on the abstract and the abstract must include title, all authors’ names and affiliations, and text of the abstract.  Deadline to apply is Friday, January 4, 2019. Selected candidates will be notified within 3 weeks after the deadline. Selected recipients will receive the travel grant funds at the conference as well as complementary registration.
