2022 ISDP Student/Postdoc Travel Award Winners

ISDP Student/Postdoc Member Travel Awards 

Travel Awards (ISDP Student Members of Early-Career members who are still Postdocs) for ISDP 2022 Hybrid Meeting. 

Travel Awards are available for students and early-career (still postdoc) members of the ISDP. Those who participate virtually are listed for recognition of having been chosen for an award but funding is only to those who travel to the meeting. These awards are made possible through contributions and grants from ISDP as well as our sponsors and the NIH. If any of the travel award winners switched to virtual participation they forfeited the travel award but remain on the list for recognition purposes.
