02 Apr 2012

Keystone Symposia is very pleased to announce the availability of approximately 10 Ian Bathurst Global Health Travel Awards to enable attendance at Keystone Symposia’s January 2013 Malaria meeting in New Orleans by investigators studying parasitology in disease-endemic regions. Preference will be given to early-career malaria researchers.  

The Awards honor Dr. Ian Bathurst, a highly respected and beloved malaria researcher who most recently worked for Medicines for Malaria Venture in Geneva, Switzerland and who sadly passed away in June 2011. Dr. Bathurst participated in four Keystone Symposia malaria conferences and valued the opportunities these provided to enhance knowledge, innovation and collaboration in the field. Please visit the MMV website for more background information on this dedicated scientist and his work.

The Awards cover the costs of attending the conference, including meeting registration, lodging, airfare and ground transportation. A brief application is required and must be submitted by August 10, 2012. More information on eligibility criteria and to apply can be found on the Keystone Symposia website.
