2018 SAPA-ForDoz Graduate Travel Grant

 

 

PURPOSE

The SAPA Graduate Travel Grant (the “Grant”) is established by the Sino-American Pharmaceutical Professionals Association (SAPA), a non-profit [501(C)(3)] pharmaceutical professional organization with more than 5000 members, to promote and encourage innovative research in the fields related to pharmaceutical and biotechnological sciences and to provide selected graduate students and postdoctoral scholars a networking and learning opportunity to get to know the industry. The Grant is given annually to two or more graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who have conducted outstanding research in the field of medicinal chemistry, organic synthesis, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, or related disciplines.

The 2018-2020 Grant is supported by the SAPA Scholarship and Excellence in Education for Life Sciences Foundation and cosponsored by ForDoz Pharma Corp., a specialty pharmaceutical company established in 2014 focusing on developing and manufacturing complex injectable products, such as liposome, microsphere, and nano suspension based on its proprietary drug delivery technology. The company’s pipeline includes a series of complex generic drug products of liposome and microsphere, as wells as several improved existing 505(b)(2) products using liposome and microsphere delivery system. ForDoz Pharma has its headquarter, R&D labs, and cGMP manufacturing facility on its own 27-acre property located at 69 Princeton Hightstown Road, East Windsor, New Jersey.

 

 

GENERAL GUIDELINES

The Grant will be awarded to selected graduate students & postdoctoral scholars for attending SAPA’s Annual Conference, which is held in New Jersey each year. The Grant will be awarded on the basis of merits, with an emphasis on independent high quality original research at the forefront of the field, and the applicants must be postdoctoral scholars or full-time graduate students enrolled in the Ph.D. or M.S. graduate program of a university or research institution in the United States, who have done outstanding research in the qualified scientific disciplines directly related to pharmaceutical and biotech industries. The Grant will be preferentially awarded to those graduate students or postdoctoral scholars who have substantially completed graduate research and are interested in pursuing a career in pharmaceutical or biotech industry.

Each Grant includes a one-time fund of $500 to be awarded to each of the selected Grant recipients for attending the SAPA annual conference in New Jersey, while waiving registration fees for attendance of the Conference. The Grant is open to any qualified graduate students and postdoctoral scholars throughout the United States.
