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.
Call for Applications: 2014 Young Investigator Award and Lectureship in the Fields of Nanofabrication and Nanotechnology
Sponsored by Elsevier
Honoring and Promoting a Young researcher active in the fields of Nanofabrication and Nanotechnology for Electronics, MEMS and Life Sciences
Micro Electronic Engineering (MEE) is proud to celebrate 30 years (1983-2013) of contribution in the field of processing for Micro- and Nano-scale Device and System fabrication. In the past 30 years MEE has expanded from the field of microelectronics to the fields of Nanotechnology and Microsystems following the rapid proliferation of microelectronics into many new areas and applications. Beyond electronics, MEE is now also focusing on fabrication of photonic, plasmonic, bioelectronic, electromechanical and fluidic devices and systems and their applications in the broad areas of electronics, energy, life sciences, and environment.
As part of the celebrations, MEE is inaugurating this series of Young Investigator Awards and MEE Lectureships. The inaugural Lectureship will be presented at the 2014 MNE2014 Conference in September, 2014 in Switzerland. The Lectureship award will include $1000, plus travel costs to present the award lecture at the September 2014 MNE meeting, while the MNE2014 conference will cover registration and accommodation costs.
Requirements for Candidates
Application is open to early-career researchers of any nationality from universities, research centers, and industry. The applicant must have earned his or her PhD degree after January 1st 2006. The applicant must have published papers as a main or first author in MEE. Candidates should apply themselves and MUST include the name and contact details of one main nominator, plus the name and contact details of 2 more people who can provide recommendation letters.
Applications should include:
An introductory page (max 1 page) including: Name and affiliation of the candidate, date of completion of the candidate's most recent degree, name and affiliation and contact details of a nominator and two more people who will offer a recommendation letter, as well as a brief statement (e.g. half a page) from the nominator (e.g. a copy of a support e-mail). Nominators are expected to be members of the MEE editorial board, or well known and established members of the MEE community.
A CV (max 2 pages)
Track record (max 2 pages) including: Brief description of accomplishments, list of top publications (with focus on those relevant to the award and those in MEE), list of patents, invited presentations, and awards
