GEM will sponsor a limited number of UBMD physicians to attend precision medicine conferences from September 2017-July 2018. These conferences provide the opportunity for physicians to learn more about how to translate the promise of genomic medicine—including pharmacogenomics—into practice.
Applicants will be asked to give a brief, informal talk to the GEM Community of Excellence (at a time of mutual convenience) or to respond to interview questions to share new and interesting scientific findings with potential or current clinical applications that may be of interest to a local audience.
The GEM team will review applicants and make selections on a rolling basis through June 2018. Winners of the conference sponsorship award will be notified via email.
Costs will be covered in accordance with the UB travel
guidelines (available online at
buffalo.edu/administrative-services/business-travel/travel-guidelines). Reimbursable expenses include:
To receive the sponsorship funding, applicants must make arrangements to attend the conference according to UB travel guidelines, retain all original receipts and records obtained throughout the registration and attendance process, and complete all relevant paperwork provided by GEM and/or the University at Buffalo.
