ASGCT gives out Meritorious Abstract Travel Awards to Associate Members (students or postdoctoral fellows) who have submitted abstracts and received a sufficiently high average review score from the abstract reviewers. Recipients of a travel award will receive up to $500 (domestic) or $600 (international) of their travel expenses related to the meeting reimbursed. Notifications for abstract travel awards will be sent out on March 29, 2017.
If you have received a travel award:
Each year the ASGCT Abstract Review Committee selects the top six abstracts submitted by students and fellows to receive Excellence in Research Awards. Recipients of the Excellence in Research Awards will be announced at the end of the George Stamatoyannopoulos plenary lecture on Thursday, May 11, 2017 from 10:30 am – 11:45 am, and will receive a monetary award of $500 along with a special plaque. In addition, they will receive a Meritorious Abstract Travel Award as described above. Reimbursement procedures are the same as described.
ASGCT will again be giving Outstanding Poster Presentation Awards to poster presenters from each abstract category. Awards will be given based on an onsite review during each poster session by the respective poster review teams. Recipients of the Outstanding Poster Presentation Awards will be announced via the ASGCT website and meeting mobile app.
