NIDA To Provide Travel Awards to Junior Investigators Conducting Research Focused on Women and Sex/Gender Differences in Drug Abuse
Evidence from many recent research studies, both in people and in animals, has shown that males and females often differ in the antecedents, consequences, and mechanisms of drug abuse and dependence. These differences between the sexes may affect individual responses to treatment and prevention. To help spur comparative studies of treatment outcomes among males and females and to promote female-specific research, NIDA plans to provide travel awards for $750 each to 27 junior investigators who will present their research on the role of female sex or sex/gender differences in drug abuse at the annual meeting of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence in Phoenix, Arizona, June 13–18, 2015.
Travel award recipients must be the first author on their accepted oral presentation or poster. Eligible applicants include graduate and medical students, postdocs, medical residents, and researchers who are no more than 5 years past earning their doctoral degree or finishing their residency. NIDA encourages male and minority investigators to apply.
Applications are due by December 5, 2014. For additional information, see 2015 Call for Abstracts or contact Dr. Samia Noursi (firstname.lastname@example.org; 301-594-5622) or Dr. Cora Lee Wetherington (email@example.com; 301-435-1319).
