Scholarships for the Individualizing Medicine Conference
Are you a graduate student, post-doctoral fellow or early career faculty member involved in precision medicine research? Here’s a great opportunity to present your research before some of the most influential physicians and scientists in precision medicine – all while learning from them.
Apply now for the Early Career Investigators in Precision Medicine Scholarship Program, a program supported by the Brandt Family Scholars Fund, to attend Individualizing Medicine 2017: Advancing Care Through Genomics – a national conference focused on how to translate the promise of genomics into clinical practice, sponsored by the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine.
“Early career investigators bring a fresh approach to research. These bright young minds will continue to forge new biomedical discoveries that will lead to better prevention, screening and treatment of disease,” says Timothy Curry, M.D., Ph.D., director, Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine Education Program and a clinical anesthesiologist on Mayo Clinic’s campus in Rochester, Minnesota. “We are pleased to offer this opportunity once again to allow outstanding early career investigators to present their research at the conference. We are grateful to the Brandt family who supports this scholarship program, which attracts young investigators who are the future of individualized medicine.”
Highlights from 2016 scholarship recipients
Last year’s Brandt Scholars were excited to have the opportunity to present research on a wide range of precision medicine topics and hear from leaders in the field.
“It was such a fantastic opportunity to present my work in front of peers as well as those that I see as leaders and mentors in the field of individualized medicine,” says Nicole Boczek, Ph.D., a resident in clinical molecular genetics at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Rochester, Minnesota and one of the 2016 Brandt Scholars. “My presentation at the 2016 Individualizing Medicine Conference led to research collaboration with Mayo investigators. We are currently preparing a manuscript to publish our study results. I am so grateful that the Brandt family supported me through this scholarship program.”
