2015 Young Investigators

APS is pleased to grant Young Investigator Travel Awards to 36 trainees. The grant is intended to help offset costs from attending the 2015 Annual Scientific Meeting. These individuals will present their research during designated poster sessions. The APS meeting creates an environment in which scientists and clinicians can share relevant information from their differing perspectives, frequently leading to advances in science and clinical care. Funding for the Young Investigator Travel Award Program is supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the National Institute on Aging, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number R13NS092293.
