With the goal of promoting scientific communication and fostering local communities of cell biologists, the American Society for Cell Biology is pleased to announce financial support for one-day local meetings organized by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Such meetings will typically involve two or more local research institutions or colleges (within or outside of the USA). Topics can range from basic science to career development, as long as there is clear relevance to the broadly defined field of cell biology.
An application must include the following information:
If sponsored, the meeting organizers are expected to acknowledge ASCB in their local advertisement and to write a brief, one-page report of the meeting after its conclusion. Organizers may be asked to write a brief report for the ASCB Newsletter as well.
Note: The funds (financial support) for One-Day Local Meetings may be used to cover the direct costs of the meeting, but grantees will not be entitled to use grant funds to cover indirect costs. Examples of indirect costs include, but are not limited to, executive oversight, accounting, grants management, legal expenses, utilities, facility maintenance.
