BJA/ARS Travel Bursaries 2017

Up to 10 travel bursaries of £1,000 each are available to support members of research active departments presenting their work at the joint meeting of the British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA)/Anaesthetic Research Society (ARS) Research Forum, with the Association of University Anesthesiologists (AUA) to be held in Washington DC from 4th - 5th May 2017. This meeting is aligned with the annual IARS congress at the same venue from 6th - 9th May 2017.

Abstracts for poster presentations can be submitted via the AUA website from December 2016, before the closing date of Tuesday 31st January 2017. The AUA website asks you to name a sponsoring AUA member; if you are not a member in this field you should name "AUA Council" as your sponsor.

You will need to be a member of the BJA/ARS Research Forum. If you are not already a member - which is open to all researchers in relevant disciplines at a cost of £30 per year - you can join by contacting Prof Graeme McLeod.
