In our commitment to supporting students, trainees and early-career scientists and broadening participation in neuroscience to those from backgrounds underrepresented in our field, we have worked with our partners to offer travel fellowships to attend #LEARNMEM2023. Travel awards are possible thanks to government, industry and nonprofit partners who are dedicated to supporting our early-career scholars. If you are interested in sponsoring a travel award, please contact Manuella Oliveira Yassa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BRIGHTFOCUS DIVERSITY TRAVEL FELLOWSHIPS
Five travel fellowships were awarded to researchers broadly studying age-related cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease. These Fellowships are supported by a generous grant from the BrightFocus Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports research to end Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration and glaucoma. BrightFocus is at the forefront of brain and eye health, advancing early-stage, investigator-initiated research around the world. BrightFocus also provides educational materials to people affected by or interested in these diseases, empowering them to take action for themselves and others.
