Our Early Career Researcher and Student Travel Awards Programme is an example of how the Foundation is using donated funds to help young stem cell researchers attend conferences, make connections, and present their work to their colleagues.
The NSCFA provides conference and travel support for PhD students and early-career researchers to attend and present at the Australian Society of Stem Cell Researchers (ASSCR) conferences as well as the International Society of Stem Cell Researchers (ISSCR) conference. The NSCFA also sponsors a special Junior Investigator Award Programme.
Since we started this programme we have assisted over 250 future stem cell researchers. The Early Career and Student Travel Awards Programme is just one way in which the Foundation supports stem cell research and public education.
To continue this work, we need funding.
