The primary goal of this travel award is to promote participation in an ASPET Meeting by pharmacology educators and to foster career development in pharmacology education. This award is intended to help defray the costs of travel and housing to attend the ASPET Annual Meeting at EB 2015. Each year, two awards are given: one to an early career candidate and one to a senior candidate. ASPET congratulates this year’s winners: Diane M. Calinski, PhD, Manchester University College of Pharmacy, and, Rochelle Schwartz-Bloom, PhD, Duke University.
