Call for Early Career Investigator Travel Fellowship Applications: Companion Diagnostics: From Biomarker Identification to Market Entry
April 28 - 29, 2014 The New York Academy of Sciences
Presented by The New York Academy of Sciences
The recent growth in complex biological data has enabled a major paradigm shift in healthcare away from "one-size-fits-all" approaches towards customized, patient-tailored therapies. Biomarker-based companion diagnostics (CDx), designed to identify responsive patient sub-populations or those likely to experience adverse drug effects, lie at the heart of this personalized, precision medicine movement.
This 2-day conference will provide a neutral forum for international scientists and clinicians from academia, industry, and government — as well as healthcare policy makers, regulatory experts, insurance sector representatives, and other stakeholders — to discuss research, financial, and regulatory strategies that will facilitate CDx development and integration into clinical care. Presentations will illustrate successes and failures based on case studies; evaluate emerging applications of technologies such as epigenetics, bioinformatics, and nanotechnology; analyze diverse therapeutic target areas beyond cancer including inflammatory, infectious, cardiovascular, metabolic, and neurodegenerative diseases; recognize regulatory hurdles; and formulate solutions to better improve public health with CDx and personalized medicine.
The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, March 14, 2014.
Applications are invited from qualified early career investigators. For detailed information on eligibility and application instructions, please send an email to CDx2014@nyas.org with the words "Fellowship Information" in the subject line. There is no need to type a message; instructions will be forwarded automatically. Please call 212.298.8618 with any questions.
International Society for Heart Research Richard J. Bing Award for Young Investigators
The Richard J. Bing Award for Young Investigators is given at each World Congress of the International Society for Heart Research. The purpose of this Award is to recognize outstanding endeavors by new investigators in research activities, and to encourage continued biomedical research careers broadly related to cardiovascular biology. Details of the competition are as follows:
1. Candidates must be active members (or have applied for membership) of the ISHR (membership application forms are available on the ISHR website at www.ishrworld.org or from Dr. Richard L. Moss, Sec Gen ISHR, Senior Assoc Dean, Basic Research, Biotechnology and Graduate Studies, Univ of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, 750 Highland Ave, Madison, WI, 53705, USA; ph: 608-265-0523, fax: 608-265-0522, email: email@example.com).
2. Candidates must have received their Ph.D. (or equivalent) less than 6 years prior to the opening day of the Congress. Allowance will be made for career breaks. It is the responsibility of the candidate and supervisor to justify the degree of disruption to the career.
3. Applications must include the following:
• An original manuscript in any area of cardiovascular biology
• A curriculum vitae
• A statement detailing how much of the design and research work was done by the candidate and by any co-investigators. This statement must be endorsed by the candidate’s immediate supervisor (e.g., Division Head, Department Chairman, or Institute Director). In case of multi-authored manuscripts, the supervisor should also indicate that among all of the co-authors, the applicant is the most appropriate candidate for the Award, and offer rationale for this opinion.
All of these items should be provided in electronic format, as PDF files on a single flash drive. A printed copy of the supervisor's statement letter, with original signature, should also accompany the nomination.
6. The manuscript must be unpublished (as defined by not having appeared on PubMed) by the closing date for submissions for the Award.
7. The application materials must be received by Dr. Richard L. Moss, Sec Gen ISHR, Senior Assoc Dean, Basic Research, Biotechnology and Graduate Studies, Univ of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, 750 Highland Ave, Madison, WI, 53705, USA; ph: 608-265-0523, fax: 608-265-0522, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than February 1, 2016. Applications received after that date will not be considered.
8. Only one submission per author will be considered. The candidate must be the sole or the first author of the manuscript submitted.
9. Four finalists will be selected from the submitted works by a Committee of the ISHR. Each finalist will qualify for a travel award of up to a maximum of US$1,500 [to include coach class travel and a maximum of 3 nights’ hotel accommodation] when the Award recipient delivers their oral presentation at a World Congress in his/her region, and up to a maximum of US$3,000 when inter-continental travel is required. All finalists will receive a free electronic subscription to the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology. A photograph and biosketch of the winner will be published in Heart News and Views, and will be posted in the ISHR website.
10. At the Congress, each finalist will verbally present his/her study to the Society. The winner of the Award will receive a plaque and a cash award of US$1,500. The three runner-ups will receive a plaque and a cash award of US$1,000.
11. Any finalist who, for any reason, cannot personally present his or her work must withdraw from the competition. Substitute presenters are not allowed.
12. Submitted manuscripts will not be returned.
