Deadline for Giessen Scholarship is June 1, 2016.

PUBLISH AN OUTSTANDING ARTICLE IN AJP-LUNG:
WIN A SCHOLARSHIP TO ATTEND ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS PULMONARY MEETINGS IN THE WORLD
One of the Deputy Editors of AJP-Lung (Dr. Rory Morty) is in charge of the International Graduate Programme in Molecular Biology and Medicine of the Lung at the Universities  of Giessen and Marburg Lung Center, Germany.  This program sponsors a yearly retreat, which in the opinion of the Editor is one of the best pulmonary meetings in the world
We feel that trainees and junior faculty will benefit greatly by attending this meeting to be  held in Rauischholzhausen, Germany August 6-8, 2016.  The American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology and the International Graduate Programme Molecular Biology and Medicine of the Lung are co-sponsoring two fellowships this year to allow one trainee (graduate student, post-doctoral fellow or clinical Fellow) and one junior faculty (instructor or Assistant Professor) to travel to Giessen and participate in this glorious event.  A travel allowance of up to $1200 to cover transportation will be paid by AJP-Lung while local transportation, food and lodging will be provide the ICPMBM).  Candidates should have published an outstanding paper in AJP-Lung during the last two years as first author while either a trainee or an Assistant Professor.  Those that receive an award from AJP-Lung will be given priority.  Nominations or self-nominations should be sent to the Managing Editor (Ms. Amy McEver at amcever@emory.edu).  Winners will be expected to write a short review on a topic of a lecture by an invited speaker to be considered for publication in AJP-Lung.
