The MacLean Scholar awards were created to enable two neuroscience trainees to attend the APS Annual Meeting and interact with the recipient of the Paul D. MacLean Award for Outstanding Neuroscience Research in Psychosomatic Medicine.
- MacLean Scholar winners will receive travel reimbursement in the amount of $500 to attend the meeting
- You must submit an abstract to be considered for this award
- Applicant must be first author on an abstract accepted for presentation at the APS Annual Meeting
- Applicants must be a member of APS, or in the process of applying for membership (for a membership application, please visit the membership section on the APS website)
- Applicant must be undergraduate or graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, medical students or resident physicians
- Selection will be based primarily on outstanding research or research potential and research that address questions that will advance the legacy of Paul MacLean and should link direct measures of brain function either to medical outcomes or mediating variables that can be directly linked to such outcomes
