Summer School: Special funding for young scientists of the WG on Myocardial Function - Apply now !

Dear Members of the WG Myocardial Function,

During the latest Spring meeting in Nice, I have obtained that the Council on Basic
Cardiovascular Science, ESC, grants funds to our WG Myocardial Function to specifically support the participation of young scientists (PhD students during their last year or early post-docs) at the ESC/CBCS Summer School (co-directed by Andrew Newby and myself) to be held in Nice, July 5-9, 2009.

This is a superb training initiative and opportunity for your young scientists to meet and
learn from world-renown experts in cardiovascular science, present their work and build

The funding was requested to help particularly young PI's from our WG to send their
students and strengthen their groups. We can provide full coverage (travel + fees, including accommodation) for approx. 6 young scientists, which then can go there for free!

Two conditions, though:

- The candidate MUST apply before April 1 to the CBCS

- The candidate must be selected by the Summer School organizing committee
(will be done by May 5)

When he/she is selected, the PI must address a request to me (as Chair of WG Myo Function) for funding.
The grants will be distributed on a "first come, first served" basis.
I hope you will take advantage of this unique opportunity.

J-L Balligand
Chairman, WG Myocardial Function
