Supporting young students and scientists in the GPCR field is one of the priorities of the GDR to encourage their involvement in the field. Different programs will be organized to highlight outstanding scientific contributions, to support diffusion of young scientist contributions and to participate in their training (congress participation, training in partner labs), which will be crucial for future carrier building.
Short talks of the annual meeting will be preferentially chosen from abstracts submitted by young scientists. Several prices will be awarded for outstanding posters at the annual meeting. Sponsoring of awards by industrial partners is welcome.
The GDR could support short-term stays of young scientists in a partner lab to foster technical transfer or to facilitate collaborative studies involving students or post-docs of two partner labs. Part of the GDR budget can be used to facilitate the participation of young scientists in international conferences on GPCRs.
