Young Investigator Award Presidential Grants from the NMS-Group
Symposium Summary: Sleep research in neurodegeneration has become a rapidly growing field of research with major clinical and scientific impact. REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) as a hallmark and risk factor of neurodegeneration has gained prominent recognition in the last 15 years, identifying those patients at increased risk for neurodegenerative diseases. Idiopathic RBD patients will most likely comprise the ideal population for enrollment in neuroprotective trials in the future. We learn from sleep disorders about the pathophysiology of brain functioning in Parkinson syndromes and we can better define various phenotypes of Parkinson disease. Animal studies will be another focus in this research area, to study the interaction of Gaba-ergic, cholinergic and dopaminergic neurotransmission in the generation of REM sleep, REM without atonia and RBD.
Application Process: We invite all young researchers who are active in the field of clinical or experimental sleep research in a topic related to neurodegeneration (i.e. Parkinson syndromes or Alzheimer disease) or neurobiology of REM sleep to submit their abstracts and apply for a travel grant – with the chance of being selected to present their work in a special symposium entitled “Neurodegeneration and Sleep” at the 5th World Congress on Sleep Medicine in Valencia, Spain.
STEP ONE – Submit your abstract online at www.wasmcongress.com/abstract/submit_form.php.
-Select the box “Young Investigator”
STEP TWO – Email WASM at email@example.com. Within your email add why you are applying for this award with a short letter (max 200 words) and biosketch.
Deadline: June 30, 2013
Requirement: 35 years old or younger OR less than 3 years in that topic.
If selected your 10 minute oral presentation will be included in a special symposium during the meeting on Tuesday, October 1st from noon to 1:30 PM.
A travel grant of $1000-1500 (depending on distance of travel) will be provided to symposium speakers.
