CARE travel bursaries for NECTAR2018

The Campaign for Alzheimer’s Research in Europe (CARE) has offered to sponsor travel bursaries for UK or Irish students or postdocs to attend the 2018 NECTAR meeting, to be held 6-7 December 2018 in Paris.

Applications will be competitive and are open to PhD students and post-docs (but not salaried faculty) from any NECTAR member laboratories within the UK and Ireland, and will be for a max of £350 (UK) or €400 (Ireland) each. The applicant must submit an abstract for a data-blitz or invited oral presentation at the meeting. The subject may be in any area of neurorestoration or transplantation for neurodegenerative disease, although applications that focus on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are particularly welcomed.

Applications should be submitted by email to and comprise the following attachments:

  1. a 1-page CV;
  2. a copy of the abstract;
  3. a statement of estimated costs claimed, which may cover, travel, registration and accommodation, along with a declaration that these costs cannot be met from any other source;
  4. a supporting letter from the head of laboratory.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon GMT Monday 5 November (following closure of the abstract and early registration deadline), and CARE will seek to notify decisions within 7 days following.
