The International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT), in collaboration with inGenious Targeting Laboratory (iTL), has establised the ISTT YOUNG INVESTIGATOR AWARD that will be given at the Transgenic Technology (TT) Meetings.
The ISTT Young Investigator Award recognizes outstanding achievements by a young scientist who will keep the field of transgenic technologies vibrant with new ideas and who has recently received his or her advanced professional degree. The ISTT Young Investigator Award is generously sponsored by inGenious Targeting Laboratory (iTL).
The ISTT Young Investigator Award is associated to funds that will serve to defray the costs related to the participation of the ISTT Young Investigator awardee at the corresponding TT Meeting, including: TT meeting registration fee, travel expenses to the TT meeting venue and accommodation during the meeting dates for the awarded candidate, with a maximum being set to 1500 Euros. All ISTT Young Investigator awardees will be given 1 year Ordinary ISTT Membership and a diploma, that will be provided at the ISTT Awards Ceremony, within the TT Meeting Program.
Instructions for participating and additional information is provided at the ISTT Young Investigator Award web page, within the ISTT web site.
