This conference focuses on translational aspects of addiction research among chemists, biologists, and behavioral scientists. The diversity of ..
participants and attendees at this meeting (undergraduate students to senior faculty, chemists to psychiatrists) provides a unique venue for networking among different disciplines and in so doing promotes new and innovative approaches to medications development in addiction biology. The meeting provides a stimulating environment for young scientists who are strongly encouraged to present their work and interact with senior scientists. The Pathways to Careers in Science (PCS) Workshops are a free event and gives trainees an opportunity to discuss the variety of career paths that are available to young scientists. Abstracts must include the following: rationale, hypothesis, species, number of subjects, procedures (methods and statistical analyses), results, and conclusions (importance of findings). For those who will be presenting, or are thinking of doing so, we have helpful suggestions that will help showcase yourself and your infomation in the most advantagous way. This workshop provides trainees an opportunity to discuss the variety of career paths that are available to young scientists with a distinguished group of scientists who themselves have had interesting and varied scientific career paths.
