Virtual Scientific Event Support:

Are you interested in a virtual scientific event or career development course, but are daunted by the fee? 

The PDA will fund up to $100 toward your registration fees!

Please submit an application by emailing postdoc@childrens.harvard.edu with the following information: 

  • Full name and lab
  • Title of the course
  • Date of the event (must be scheduled between April-December 2020)
  • 4-5 lines about what motivates you to attend this course, and how it helps your career

We will hold a raffle to select winners (the number of winners will depend upon the total cost of events)



We know this is a difficult time, and we are currently planning some virtual events to make sure we maintain our community. We look forward to seeing you there. And, when we defeat this virus together, we look forward to seeing you in person again!
