YMCC-YSN Travel Grant to attend EFMC | ACSMEDI Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers Meeting

To support the participation of young researchers to attend transatlantic conferences and offer them the opportunity to broaden their network outside the national-regional scope, the ACSMEDI Young Medicinal Chemists Committee (YMCC) and EFMC Young Scientists Network (YSN) are funding a reciprocal grant. Up to two grants of $3000 USD will be paid towards economy flights and up to 3-nights accommodation to facilitate attendance at the EFMC | ACSMEDI Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers meeting. The grants will be allocated to U.S. based researchers when the conference takes place in the Europe, and to European researchers when the conference takes place in the U.S (the latter supported by YSN).

Additionally, the awardees will be guaranteed a poster presentation, and will be offered the opportunity to apply for an oral communication. To apply, you will need to provide an updated CV, cover letter stating your motivation for applying, and an abstract for your proposed presentation. The awardee/s will be responsible for ensuring that they have a valid passport, and the appropriate visa to travel to the meeting.

The upcoming edition of the EFMC | ACSMEDI Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers will take place in Utrecht, The Netherlands, April 8-11 2024. For more information on the program please visit https://www.medchemfrontiers.org/
