The board of the SPLC-CRS Local Chapter, is  delighted to invite you to participate on the 1st SPLC-CRS Young Scientist Meeting that will take place on April 23rd (pm) and April 24th (am), at the Centro Singular de Investigación en Medicina Molecular y Enfermedades Crónicas (CiMUS Research Institute), Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

WHY?

This initiative comes along with the CRS initiative to award young scientists with travel grants to those local chapters applying for those awards. These travel grants will enable students to participate in the 2017 CRS annual meeting (July 16th-19th, 2017, Boston, USA). Two travel grants will be awarded by the SPLC-CRS. This is an initiative that we would like to become implemented on a regular basis in the future, and complementary to our biannual meeting. Overall, this is an opportunity to turn our society more dynamic that we could not loose.
