Scholarship for PhD students and postdocs with poster-presentation

Bergen Stem Cell Consortium is a research initiative that is intended to function as a catalyst for stem cell research in Western Norway, led by and located in the Helse Bergen health trust. The initiative is a collaborative between six local research groups that work in the field of stem cell research and share the goal of generating basic scientific knowledge about the use of stem cells and introducing personalised stem cell-based treatment.

Scholarship for PhD students and postdocs

We aim to increase contact between young stem cell researchers nationwide and we therefore invite PhD students and postdoctoral fellows from research groups in Norway to present their projects as posters during the meeting. The program-committee will select 6 presenters from all applications who will be awarded a travel-grant to attend the meeting.

The presenters will have their full registration fees covered and travel expenses will be paid up to NOK 2,000. For further information, contact project leader Tor Hervig (BSCC@helse-bergen.no). Applications (maximum 1 page with title and abstract of poster and a short CV of 1 page) should be mailed to the same address before 7th of August. Please indicate when registering for the meeting (top of page) that you wish to participate with a poster-presentation.
