2023 Lymphatic Forum Travel Awards

The travel awards are made possible by a generous grant from the Salice Family Foundation.

The Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN) is offering Travel Awards (20 total of $500 US currency) for early investigators who are LE&RN members (PhD students ,graduate students,  medical students and postdocs) to defray registration and travel costs associated with attending the Lymphatic Forum. In addition, four Best Poster Presentation awards (one $500 US currency and three $250 US currency) will be given to the top posters presented. Travel awards are NOT available for local participants (defined as “residing within a 25 mile radius of the meeting venue”) to attend the conference.

 The North American Vascular Biology Organization (NAVBO) is offering up to five Travel Awards of $500USD each to trainee members of NAVBO (students, postdocs or equivalent). 

 If you are not a member of either society, consider joining LE&RN or NAVBO to be eligible for a trainee award.
