Joint Meeting: Systems and Biology (X4)

Summary of Meeting:
Proteomics has emerged as a key discipline in the post-genomic 'tool chest' and over the last few years, proteomics technology has become extraordinarily powerful. Mass spectrometry, array based protein methods and single cell imaging methods have combined to give us rich data of all the expressed proteins of the cell, 'its proteome'. While the technology is still developing rapidly, and 'data collection' efforts are just gathering steam, the focus of this meeting will be on applications of proteomics to problem solving in molecular cell biology as well as in molecular medicine. Bioinformatics methods to keep track of the wealth of data and beginning efforts to integrate disparate large-scale data sets will also be highlighted. Another emerging area in bioinformatics and systems biology is the building of models of whole cells.

These scholarships are to be used to help defray the expenses associated with conference attendance, including airfare (restrictions may apply based on funding source), ground transportation, lodging costs, and a portion of meeting registration. Receipts will be required to receive reimbursement.

Abstracts submitted for poster presentation will be used as the basis for awarding the scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on the quality of science of the abstract and the relevance of the abstract to the conference topic. Only one application per abstract is accepted. Only one award per lab will be allocated.


To be eligible for a scholarship, you must be:

A graduate student or postdoctoral fellow currently enrolled in an academic institute at the start of the meeting for which you are applying. Note: a graduate student is defined as a student who is studying for a higher degree at an academic institution. A postdoctoral fellow is defined as an individual with a Ph.D., M.D., or DVM degree who is engaged in a temporary period of mentored research and/or scholarly training for the purpose of acquiring the professional skills needed to pursue their desired career path, and is within 6 years of these degrees.

    • Grammar and spelling
  4. Clarity of scientific presentations
    • Clear question or hypothesis
    • Sufficient background
    • The experimental approach and rationale for the approach are clear
    • The results are clearly presented
    • The interpretation and conclusions are reasonable and logical
