Histochemical Society offers graduate research grants

Submitted by Joe Montgomery

The Histochemical Society's Cornerstone Grants program has extended its application deadline this year due to the unusual circumstances related to COVID-19 and campus closures. Graduate students who are interested in funding for research projects can apply for a competitive $2,000 grant. The revised deadline is July 31 for the Cornerstone Grant.

This grant will provide funds to assist graduate medical trainees and graduate students in conducting research involving immunohistochemistry or histochemical techniques and in situ hybridization.

Grant recipients will be required to report their findings to the Histochemical Society Education Committee upon the completion of the project. Recipients also will be required to submit an abstract for presentation at the Histochemical Society's annual meeting, and encouraged to apply to the HCS Travel Awards to aid in attendance. Applicants must be graduate medical trainees — residency or fellowship; graduate students — Ph.D. or thesis-based master's or combined degree program students — possibilities include but are not limited to M.D./Ph.D., D.V.M./Ph.D., D.D.S./Ph.D., M.D/M.S.

A. Sally Davis, assistant professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology in the College of Veterinary Medicine welcomes further inquiries, and her lab has experience helping students with the Cornerstone program. She can be contacted by email at asally@vet.k-state.edu.
