Experimental Biology (EB) is an interdisciplinary meeting that brings together thousands of scientists across 5 scientific societies. One of the founding members of this consortium is the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP), a group with scientific interests that are closely aligned with those of ACVP members. The ASIP program at EB includes an annual symposium co-sponsored by ACVP focused on emergent topics of interest to ACVP and ASIP members, as well as several pathology-related opportunities for data presentation and networking. As indicated on the EB website (http://experimentalbiology.org), the EB meeting additionally attracts scientists and researchers in the fields of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology. ACVP trainees have many opportunities to contribute scientific findings, become aware of cutting-edge research, and network and forge productive collaborations with others at this meeting.
- This travel award is designed to encourage ACVP trainees to showcase advances they have made in veterinary pathology, basic research, and translational science at the Experimental Biology (EB) Annual Meeting.
- The ACVP will award $1,000 to a veterinary pathology trainee who has submitted an abstract to the ACVP meeting, to support the trainee's participation in the succeeding EB annual meeting.
- The cost of abstract submission to the EB will be covered by this award. The award will be distributed to the awardee after submission of receipts associated with EB meeting attendance.
- Application materials must be submitted by September 1. The applicant should submit a copy of their abstract to the ACVP/ASVCP meeting.
- The applicant should also submit a personal statement that indicates the applicant’s commitment to pathology related basic science, translational, and/or investigative pathology research, and describes the benefits EB attendance and interaction with ASIP will provide to the applicant's work and career trajectory.
- A letter of recommendation from an ACVP, ECVP, or JCVP Diplomate who is directly involved in the applicant’s training must be included. This letter should address the candidate's potential and commitment to pathology related basic science/translational/investigative pathology research, and probability of benefitting from attendance at EB.
The ACVP/ASIP Meeting Travel Award is independent of other travel awards to the ACVP Annual Meeting. Therefore, awardees do not have to select between this award and other ACVP travel awards. The winner of this award will be recognized at the Awards and Recognitions Program at the ACVP/ASVCP Annual Meeting.
