Young professionals working in the field of feline infectious diseases and/or immunology are being urged to apply for the European Advisory Board on Cat Diseases (ABCD) and Merial Young Scientist Clinical and Research Awards 2014.

catTwo awards are up for grabs – one for research, the other for basic clinical investigation – as decided and assigned by a panel of judges.

Candidates should have made an original contribution to the field of feline infectious diseases and/or immunology, which has been published or accepted for publication in a referenced journal (PubMed, Web of Science, Web of Knowledge), or accepted by another assessing body (e.g. a Thesis Committee) in 2012 or later.

Applicants should be based in Europe (EU or EFTA country), have completed a veterinary or biomedical curriculum, and be 35 years of age or younger.

The awards (€1,000 each) are funded by Merial and will be presented by the ABCD at the ISFM Feline Veterinary Congress, to be held in Riga (Latvia) from June 18-22, 2014.

Both winners will receive complimentary registration to the congress (including travel and accommodation) and will be expected to give a short presentation or present a poster of their findings during the event.

Winners of the 2013 awards were Deborah Gow (Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh) and Sanne Dolieslager (currently University of Edinburgh).

The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2014.
