    ASBMR Fund for Research and Education

    The ASBMR Fund for Research and Education is supported by individual donations that will be used exclusively to provide research grants and training opportunities for basic and clinical researchers. One hundred percent of your donation to the travel fellowship category of the ASBMR Fund for Research and Education will go directly to supporting young investigator travel fellowships to important scientific meetings. Below are the remarks from a recent recipients of an ASBMR travel grant. 

    Would you have been able to attend this meeting without travel funding provided by ASBMR?

    “Even though I am currently on an F32 it does not allow for travel to more than one meeting a year without some supplementation with travel awards.”

    Would you encourage a friend or colleague to apply for ASBMR funding to attend meetings such as the one you attended?

    “I would HIGHLY recommend my colleagues to apply for funding to attend this meeting. Many of the topics covered are applicable to our lab and it is a wonderful opportunity to network with the senior scientists presenting this work.”

    Were you able to network and connect with new peers at this meeting?

    “Yes, I networked greatly with my fellow awardees and was able to get some advice from them on K99 submissions as well providing some advice on my work that would apply to their own projects.”

    We encourage you to donate today to provide much-needed support for ASBMR members to attend meetings outside of those offered by ASBMR. Check out the ASBMR Fund for Research and Education’s website for more information.
