PGRN is pleased to announce three PGRN and two RPRD Diagnostics sponsored Travel Awards (USD 1000) for the in-person PGRN Meeting on June 12-13 in Memphis, Tennessee. The purpose of the PGRN Travel Awards is to support travel to the PGRN Annual Meeting and acknowledge excellence in pharmacogenomics research by Early Career, Postdoctoral, and Predoctoral members of the PGRN. For one international awardee (outside of the US/Canada), one of these awards will be increased to USD 2000 to support the increased cost of international travel.
A PGRN predoctoral member is defined as: being enrolled in a graduate or professional program at a degree-granting institution of higher learning. Graduate and professional students are considered predoctoral members of the PGRN.
A PGRN postdoctoral member is defined as: having obtained their doctoral degree and are currently working in a clinical or postdoctoral trainee program. Residents and postdoctoral fellows are considered postdoctoral members of the PGRN.
A PGRN early career member is defined as being within 10 years of their terminal degree or post-doctoral training program, whichever is latest. The PGRN embraces an inclusive view of early career membership and individuals with extenuating circumstances or experiencing prolonged interruptions to an individual’s career such as pregnancy, major illness/injury, or caregiver responsibilities may be considered early career members at the PGRN’s discretion.
Applicants must be PGRN members with their dues currently paid.
At the time of the award deadline, applicants for the Travel Awards must be Early Career, Postdoctoral, or Predoctoral members of the PGRN (please see definitions below).
Applicants must submit the following items as a single PDF document:
Applicants must agree to deliver a brief presentation describing their research at the PGRN Annual Meeting. Applicants must submit a color photograph (TIFF, EPS, or JPEG) measuring at least 4x6 cm at 300 dpi resolution for publication in PGRN announcements and on the PGRN website.
The PGRN Early Career Committee will select the awardees, who will be notified of the decision prior to the PGRN Annual Meeting. PGRN seeks to promote gender equality and increase diversity in all forms throughout its programs. Awards are distributed based on the merit of the trainee’s application and scientific accomplishments. Travel Awards will be presented to the awardees by the PGRN President or other official representative of the PGRN at the Annual Meeting. Travel Awardees will be honored with a plaque and a travel honorarium of $1000. For one international PGRN awardee, one of these awards will be increased to $2000 to support the high cost of international travel. The awardees will be spotlighted in the final program, the PGRN newsletter, and on the website, and receive complementary registration to the meeting.
