ISDP will provide numerous travel awards this year to assist with the cost of attending ISDP 2019!  The Travel Awards are meant to help defray the costs of attending the meeting but will not likely cover all the costs. Students and postdoctoral fellows who wish to be considered for a Travel Award are required to check the appropriate box when they submit their abstract via the ISDP webpage. Students and postdoctoral fellows must be members of ISDP to be eligible. Deadline is the same as the Abstract Deadline: June 1, 2019. For more information, please visit ISDP Awards.

ISDP 51st Annual Meeting

 

The 51st Annual Meeting was held at the Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa in San Diego, California, USA, October 31st – November 2, 2018, with a record West Coast attendance of 257 participants. The meeting offered an ideal opportunity to present new findings and exchange ideas in all areas of Developmental Psychobiology.  As in year’s past, the meeting was held as a satellite event immediately prior to the Society for Neuroscience 2018 conference, which provided a more convenient way to attend both conferences!
