About this funder:



The International Society for Neurochemistry (ISN) is is a nonprofit membership organization and the only international society focused on neurochemtistry. With a proud history dating back to its establishment in 1965, ISN strives to promote all relevant aspects of molecular and cellular neuroscience.

The ISN CAEN pursues several initiatives intended to stimulate neurochemical research in economically deprived and developing countries.

CAEN provides funds towards travelling to another laboratory to develop new technical or conceptual expertise, purchasing research supplies, attending workshops/training courses/satellite meetings or organizing a workshop/small school.
Financial support from the CAEN schemes are typically given to scientists in the early stages of their careers (postdoctoral young investigators within 8 years of completing their PhD and Ph.D. students at the mid to final stages of their studies) who reside in countries with limited financial support for research in Neurochemistry (defined broadly as molecular and cellular neurobiology).

Category 2: Attending or Holding Scientific Meetings
