2019 Michael Davidson and Roger Tsien Commemorative Travel Awards

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on Jan 7, 2019 10:05:42 AM

UPDATE (06/04/2019): THE TRAVEL AWARD IS NOW CLOSED. READ ABOUT THE AWARDEES HERE.

Are you a masters student, PhD student, or postdoc using fluorescent proteins in your research? Consider applying for the Michael Davidson and Roger Tsien Commemorative Travel Awards.

To commemorate their innumerable contributions to the development of fluorescent protein tools, biological research, and their dedication to scientific sharing, Addgene is once again seeking applications for the Michael Davidson and Roger Tsien Commemorative Travel Awards. These $2,000 USD awards will be open to any masters students, PhD students, or postdocs traveling to an academic conference in the next year (April 2019 - March 2020) who can demonstrate that fluorescent proteins have or will have an impact on their research.

Fluorescent Protein Travel Awards - FLiPs and Fluorescent Protein Biosensors

Posted by Tyler Ford on Jul 27, 2017 9:11:09 AM

Fluorescent proteins have enabled scientists to pursue creative research avenues previously unavailable to them. With these fantastic tools it’s now easy to monitor protein expression, localization, and protein-protein interactions. Beyond these common applications, researchers are finding new ways to apply fluorescent proteins everyday. 

The late Michael Davidson and Roger Tsien played enormous roles in enabling researchers to utilize and develop these tools by making their own fluorescent protein technologies widely available to the research community. To honor their legacy, we recently launched the Michael Davidson and Roger Tsien Commemorative Travel Awards. These awards are intended to help scientists share their fluorescent protein research with the academic community by funding their travel to a conference of interest.

In this post, we’re proud to announce our first two Michael Davidson and Roger Tsien Commemorative Travel Awardees: Xin Zhou and Fatima Enam. There were many excellent applicants but Xin and Fatima stood out for their creativity in the use of fluorescent proteins and the potential for their work to enable future discoveries.

Supporting Rare Disease Research with BeHeard 2017

Posted by Tyler Ford on Jul 20, 2017 10:30:00 AM

We often hear about breakthroughs in diabetes and lymphoma research or the many different ways you can improve your heart health. These are amazing advances that will surely save thousands if not millions of lives, but many throughout the world are affected by devastating diseases that affect far fewer people and therefore fail to garner much international attention. Their small numbers do not, however, make these patients suffer any less acutely.
