MARC Travel Awards Announced for the FASEB 2016 Postdoctoral Preparation Institute: Career Transitions

May 20, 2016
   

FASEB MARC (Maximizing Access to Research Careers) Program has announced the travel award recipients for the FASEB 2016 Postdoctoral Preparation Institute (2016 PPI) in Bethesda, Maryland from June 2-3, 2016. These awards are meant to help support the participation of postdoctoral fellows, new assistant professors and advanced graduate students who soon will be transitioning into their first independent positions. This year MARC conferred 71 awards totaling $106,500.

The FASEB MARC Program is funded by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  A primary goal of the MARC Program is to increase the number and competitiveness of students, postdoctoral fellows and early-career scientists from underrepresented groups who are engaged in biomedical and behavioral research.

A total of 83 biomedical research trainees will be participating in the 2016 PPI. The following 71 participants have been selected to receive a FASEB MARC Travel Award:
