The Chinese Association for Laboratory Animal Sciences (CALAS) offers an annual award for young investigators (age 35 or less) to attend the annual Scientific Conference of the Chinese Association for Laboratory Animal Sciences, which begins this year on October 11. Ten awardees were selected from 23 applicants, from China, Hong Kong, China, Spain, Brazil, India, and Argentina. The selection committee included ICLAS and CALAS members.
The award provides the conference registration fee and lodging, as well as airfare assistance. The intent is to encourage young researchers in laboratory animal science and medicine, to provide them opportunity to share their work, to make new connections with others in the field, to promote academic exchange, and to learn from others.
