 Program to support COM students in presenting posters at scientific meetings


This program is designed to support COM students that are planning to present posters (or oral presentations) at scientific meetings. This program is not for faculty presenting posters/oral presentations. The COM already has a faculty development program to support faculty activities.


These are the basic principles for the application:

  • A maximum of $100 for trip and meeting expenses can be requested. Please, fill in the attached forms for the respective request and reimbursement.
  • For this cycle, the COM can support students for a maximum of $1,000.
  • The deadline for this cycle is June 30th, 2017.
  • You must be co-author of the presentation (poster or oral) to apply
  • The poster or oral presentation must include our institution, CNUCOM
  • Only one student can apply per presentation (poster or oral)
  • The same student cannot apply twice during this cycle
  • Students under the Mini-Grant Program cannot apply
  • Students that already have a research scholarship cannot apply


The COM hopes to continue this program during the next cycle, beginning on July 1st, 2017.

The NARSAD Young Investigator Grant provides support for the most promising young scientists conducting neurobiological research. Two-year awards up to $70,000, or $35,000 per year are provided to enable promising investigators to either extend research fellowship training or begin careers as independent research faculty. Basic and/or clinical investigators are supported, but research must be relevant to serious brain and behavior disorders such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders or child and adolescent mental illnesses.

A few NARSAD Young Investigator Grantees are selected each year to present at the foundation's annual Scientific Symposium in New York City. NARSAD Young Investigator Grantees are also eligible to be selected for the Foundation’s Freedman Prize for Outstanding Basic Research and Klerman Prize for Outstanding Clinical Research. Selection is based upon outstanding research as outlined in the final progress report of the NARSAD Grant project.

*Assistant Professors with an NIH R01 Grant are now eligible to apply for the NARSAD Independent Investigator Grant.

NARSAD Young Investigator Grants enable early career scientists to garner pilot data for innovative ideas before they have “proof of concept” for their work. Once their NARSAD Grant project is complete, Investigators usually go on to receive sustained grant support from other sources that has proven to equal as much as 50 times the original research grant amount. NARSAD Grants offer the first critical backing of these young scientists' work. Here are a few examples of NARSAD Young Investigator Grantees whose early work was initially supported with a NARSAD Young Investigator Grant and who went on to make breakthroughs in mental health research:

Humanity in Science Award 2017: Nominations Now Open


Calling all philanthropic scientists – nominations for the 2017 Humanity in Science Award are now open. The award – and prize money of $25,000 – will be presented to recognize a recent scientific breakthrough that can have a positive impact on people’s lives worldwide. The 2016 award recognized the "Development of a new paper and flexible material-based diagnostic biosensing platform that could be used to remotely detect and determine treatment options for HIV, E-coli, Staphylococcus aureas and other bacteria." Could the 2017 winner be you or someone you know?

Dear M1 students,

The 2017 NIDDK Medical Student Research Program (hyperlink) is a great research opportunity sponsored by NIH. The two months program is funded by NIH and allows medical students to conduct research during the summer between M1 and M2. Last summer, 96 medical students (two from CNUCOM) from 56 medical schools were awarded this research scholarship.
