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.

NARSAD Young Investigator Grants
The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2017 NARSAD Young Investigator Grant. The application deadline is Monday, February 27, 2017 at 11:59pm Eastern.
For guidelines and requirements please read the Grant Guidelines Document below.
**Submit your application as early as possible to avoid any last-minute technical complications that may arise with your submission.
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.
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.
