Student/Postdoc Travel Awards for ISDP 2019 in Chicago

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 was June 1, 2019. Award applications are currently under review. For more information, please visit ISDP Awards.

What did attendees like best about the 2018 ISDP Annual Meeting?

Integration of applied/clinical, animal and human basic science work. Also – the great focus on new scholars (trainees etc.).

Great symposium topics and well-attended poster sessions with drinks and canapes – this encourages discussion.

I always love to see the student/jr. investigators’ presentations. The society’s commitment to mentorship in a variety of formats is excellent!

The focus of the meeting was highly related to my research area. It also felt like a very welcoming environment for trainees. The wide array of topics and attendance of many leaders in the field.

balance in presentations between human and animal work. the selection of talks was very thoughtful.

High quality presentations that were truly psychobiology in that the research included aspects of both behaviour and biology (brain, cortisol, physiology).
