ISEBTT now has an awards committee overseeing the announcement of travel grant recipients (based on applications), as well as awards based on evaluation of presentations (both oral presentations and posters). This year a total of 35 travel grants are available, see below. Please apply for your travel grant by one or more applications in the category to which your abstract belongs. The awards committee will make sure only one travel grant is awarded per participant. When submitting your abstract, you will be asked if you are eligible for a best presentation award (student or early stage researcher), and all eligible presentations will be considered for one of the 28 awards.
Travel grants: By generous donation of the Doreen J. Putrah Cancer Foundation of 28 travel grants, graduate students and post.docs/Early Stage Researchers working in the field of electroporation related biomedical research, particularly, but not limited to, nanosecond pulsed electric fields, electrochemotherapy and irreversible electroporation may be eligible for a 1000 USD travel grant. Please find the application form here.
Travel grants: OncoSec Travel Grant for Cancer Research. OncoSec kindly sponsors 7 travel grants (1,000 EUR each) for graduate students and post.docs/Early Stage Researchers working in the field of electroporation related cancer research (pre-clinical, clinical and veterinary), using particularly, but not limited to, nanosecond pulsed electric fields, electrochemotherapy and irreversible electroporation. All eligible researchers are encouraged to apply. Please find the application form here.
Awards: The journal Vaccines is awarding two early stage career scientists each 500 Euro for best presentation within vaccines and oncoimmunology.
