Travel awards for young scientists (PhD students and Postdoctoral fellows)

The International Scientific Committee of the 14th ISCHS met on April 25-26 in Tromso, Norway, and evaluated all abstracts submitted, along with applications to be considered for travel award. The Committee is pleased to announce that the following 8 young scientists have been granted a travel award:

Arai, A. and Teraoka, R. (both Japan) will receive USD 1000 each
[The decision of dividing the USD 2000 equally between the two contributors is based on the fact that the two presentations together make up very intersting findings presented in the following two abstracts]:

  • SANDWICH ELISA OF LAP DEGRADATES FOR MEASUREMENT OF HEPATIC FIBROGENESIS. Arai A 1.2, Teraoka R2 , Hara M2, Ogawa S3 , Hirose S1 , Kojima S2 and
  • STUDIES ON DETECTION AND PREVENTION OF HEPATIC FIBROSIS TARGETING TGF- ß ACTIVATION REACTION. Kojima S, Arai A, and Teraoka R

Warren, A. (Australia) will receive USD 2000
