Call for Applications: Early Career Investigator Travel Fellowship for Demyelination and Remyelination: From Mechanism to Therapy
Thursday, June 26, 2014 7:45 AM - 5:45 PM The New York Academy of Sciences
Presented by Biogen Idec and the New York Academy of Sciences
Demyelinating diseases and disorders affect millions of people worldwide. While multiple sclerosis is the one of the most widely recognized myelin-associated disorders, changes to the brain’s white matter can be found in a number of genetic, inflammatory, infectious, cerebrovascular, and neurodegenerative conditions and injuries. New breakthroughs in basic science research on the white matter microenvironment and oligodendrocyte precursor cell development have provided novel potential sites of action for therapeutics. Translation of these discoveries into biomarkers to predict clinical outcomes, and into biologics that can modulate myelination utilizing these pathways, may transform the treatment of currently incurable conditions.
This one-day, translational conference will present recent findings in remyelination and repair from disease models and clinical trials, new techniques for imaging myelination changes in the brain and for screening molecular targets, and emerging therapeutics that promote remyelination.

Call for Appplications: F. J. McGuigan Dissertation Award
The F.J. McGuigan Dissertation Award provides support for dissertation research oriented toward advancing a unified conception of brain and behavior, primarily — but not exclusively — in the psychophysiological area.
Deadline: June 1, 2014
Sponsor: American Psychological Foundation
APF is seeking applications for the F. J. McGuigan Dissertation Award, which supports dissertation research that
addresses any aspect of mental function (e.g., cognition, affect, motivation) and should utilize behavioral and/or
Proposed research should be compatible with Dr. McGuigan’s overall goals and may fall within any area of
contemporary behavioral or brain science (including more recent forms of cognitive psychology).
Amount: One $2,000 award
APF does not allow institutional indirect costs or overhead costs. Applicants may use grant monies for direct administrative costs of their proposed project.
Completed doctoral candidacy, including dissertation approval by doctoral committee, at a regionally accredited institution located in the U.S. or Canada.
Demonstrated commitment to stated program goals (dualistic approaches characteristic of much contemporary cognitive research are specifically ineligible).
IRB approval must be received from host institution before funding can be awarded if human participants are involved.
