CWRU students receive competitive Trainee Professional Development Award to attend 2023 Society for Neuroscience Conference

Two graduate students, Bijoya Basu (MD/PhD) and Taylor Bense (PhD) and one postdoc, Kalyani Chaubey, PhD, from Case Western Reserve University received the competitive Trainee Professional Development Award to attend the 2023 Society for Neuroscience Conference.

The Trainee Professional Development Award (TPDA) recognizes undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who demonstrate scientific merit and excellence in research. TPDA recipients receive a travel stipend to offset the costs of attending Neuroscience 2023 ($1,000 for trainees in the United States, Canada, or Mexico or $2,500 for trainees based in other countries), as well as a complimentary registration.

After the meeting, TPDA recipients will join an online cohort and receive access to professional development opportunities on Neuronline in the year following the award. Awardees are encouraged to utilize this resource. The TPDA program is supported by SfN, donors to the Friends of SfN Fund, and several foundations, corporate supporters, memorial funds, and endowments.
