APH Spring Meeting “Personalized Medicine for Health & Prevention” Travel Award Competition 

This year the Amsterdam Public Health (APH) Personalized Medicine program will have an award available for junior researchers whose work exemplify the APH research institute. If you have interesting research ideas or findings, that make you a strong international representative for APH Personalized Medicine, you should apply.

Applications for this award are open for all junior researchers affiliated with APH (not restricted to the Personalized Medicine program) whose research could qualify as being personalized medicine research.

The best proposals will receive an invitation to present the research in the form of a ‘Pecha Kucha’ at the plenary session. The winner of the award will be announced at the end of this meeting. The APH Personalized Medicine Award comes with 1000 Euros to support travel to an international meeting (e.g., conference, workshop) or to an international group. The money needs to be spent in 2019.

Being a representative may take the form of an international conference visit, where you present your APH-affiliated work. Also supported are visits to groups abroad, if such a visit will help you to establish a valuable collaboration or gain skills and knowledge that, in a broader sense, may also benefit Personalized Medicine research in Amsterdam. Eligible are PhD-students and postdocs (up to 4 years post-degree) that are affiliated with APH.

Submission procedure
Please submit a short description of the research (ideas) you want to present internationally, as well as a description of how you will utilize the money of the travel award. In max. 400 words, indicate:

  • What APH Personalized Medicine research do you plan to present/promote abroad?
  • Where do you want to present/promote this work?
  • How will this promote and/or help your work and APH Personalized Medicine?
