Summary of Meeting:
The completion of the genomic sequences of a number of prokaryotic and eukaryotic species has catalyzed new research approaches to study the structure, function, and control of biological processes. They are characterized by the systematic and, in many cases, quantitative analysis of all the molecules of a particular type expressed by a cell or tissue. The systematic analysis of proteins has been termed "proteomics." In an initial phase, most of the proteomics efforts were focused on large-scale protein identification. More recently, the objectives and technologies of proteomics have diversified and expanded. Current proteomics research attempts to systematically and, where applicable, quantitatively determine the many properties of proteins that determine their biological function. These include protein abundance, state of modification, specific activity, interaction with other biomolecules, half-life, subcellular location, structure, and more. Significant current challenges include the development of suitable technologies to determine these properties on a proteome-wide scale, the interpretation of the large amounts of data obtained, the development of computational approaches to infer biological function, and the integration of different types of data into a coherent model describing a biological process. The goal of the meeting is to bring together leading experts from the different areas of proteomics research to discuss emerging technologies and their applications to biological and clinical research.

Scholarships

Keystone Symposia is offering scholarships of up to 1,200 USD to Students and Postdoctoral fellows. These scholarships are to be used to help defray the expenses associated with conference attendance, including airfare (restrictions may apply based on funding source), ground transportation, lodging costs, and a portion of meeting registration. Receipts will be required to receive reimbursement.

Abstracts submitted for poster presentation will be used as the basis for awarding the scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on the quality of science of the abstract and the relevance of the abstract to the conference topic. Only one application per abstract is accepted. Only one award per lab will be allocated.


Eligibility


To be eligible for a scholarship, you must be:

A graduate student or postdoctoral fellow currently enrolled in an academic institute at the start of the meeting for which you are applying. Note: a graduate student is defined as a student who is studying for a higher degree at an academic institution. A postdoctoral fellow is defined as an individual with a Ph.D., M.D., or DVM degree who is engaged in a temporary period of mentored research and/or scholarly training for the purpose of acquiring the professional skills needed to pursue their desired career path, and is within 6 years of these degrees.


Review Criteria


Criteria for Abstract Review:

  1. Relevance to the meeting topic
  2. Significance of the scientific question and results
  3. Style
    • Organization (e.g. the abstract has a clear beginning, middle and end)
    • Grammar and spelling
  4. Clarity of scientific presentations
    • Clear question or hypothesis
    • Sufficient background
    • The experimental approach and rationale for the approach are clear
    • The results are clearly presented
    • The interpretation and conclusions are reasonable and logical

Application Process


If you are eligible and wish to be considered for a scholarship, you should complete all of the following by the scholarship deadline for the meeting you wish to attend. It is recommended you begin these steps in advance of the deadline date to ensure completion.

  • Verify your contact information
  • Submit an abstract for the meeting to which you are applying (with paid abstract fee)
  • Have your mentor submit a letter via our website to verify your status as a student or postdoc
