Early Career Researcher Funding Opportunities

The ASSC is announcing two new schemes to support Early Career Researchers, to encourage collaboration between UQ and QIMR Berghofer and to accelerate translational outcomes in skin disease and skin cancer research.

ASSC EARLY CAREER VIRTUAL CONFERENCE AWARDS

Although the pandemic has restricted overseas conference travel, we still want to encourage early career researchers to present their work to an international audience.

The ASSC will commit awards to support delivery of an oral presentation to a virtual international conference. If you have an accepted oral presentation for such a conference, you are eligible to apply for an ASSC Early Career Virtual Conference Award.

This award can be used to pay for registration costs to deliver your presentation virtually at an overseas conference.
