CGM Travel Fellowships
The Center for Genetic Medicine Travel Fellowship Awards provide funding to PhD students and postdoctoral fellows to present the results of their genetics-related research at national or international scientific meetings.
Please join us in congratulating the March 2013 CGM Travel Fellowship winner Jean-Francois Poulin! Dr. Poulin received the award for his abstract titled "Single-cell expression analysis of midbrain dopamine neurons reveals Aldh1a1 as marker of vulnerability in a model of Parkinson’s disease." He will present his research at Dopamine 2013 in Alghero, Italy this May.

About the Travel Programs
Each of the three travel programs provide $750 to recipients to help defray the cost of travel and registration fees to a scientific meeting where the awardees will present their research. Recipients from each of the programs are required to present their work at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University's Annual Scientific Poster Session at the end of the academic year. The programs have the same deadlines, application and selection process. Reviewed by Faculty Committees, the awards are competitive with three application cycles each academic year.
The next application deadline is July 12, 2013. Please visit the Cancer Center's website for complete details and to download an application form.
