training. Eligible applicants include an individual beginning their
scientific career and studying or working in the U.S.
The Alex Nakeff Young Investigators Award: This prize is to be awarded
at each year's GLIIFCA meeting to the technician, undergraduate,

the annual meeting. Both oral and poster presentations will be judged.
The recipient will be awarded a cash prize, the amount of which will
be determined by the GLIIFCA steering committee in addition to any
eligible travel awards, and a plaque with his/her name inscribed on it
will be sent to the recipient.
Also, Travel and Poster Awards are available to help defray travel
costs for all students, technicians and post-docs.
