More Opportunities for Trainees
In addition to travel awards, not only from NAVBO, but from other participating societies, many trainees (students and postdocs) will be selected to give short talks within the meeting program. Submit an abstract in order to be considered for a travel award and/or a short talk.
We are planning to hold a Career Fair where trainees can meet one-on-one with representatives from several organizations. The Career Fair will open at 2pm on Thursday, October 13 - make your travel plans accordingly.
