Request for travel grant and best poster presentation sponsorship

About five years ago, we established the International Society on Aptamers (INSOAP), a platform for the growing community of aptamer researchers from academia and industry. At the same time, INSOAP established the annual conference, Aptamers, which is held in Oxford annually in March/April. This conference brings together world class researchers who are focused on using these high affinity reagents for both diagnosis and therapy.

Now entering our fifth year and with a high attendance expected again, we would like to offer travel bursaries to allow the next generation of aptamer researchers the opportunity to engage with their peers.  We are currently seeking sponsorship to fund a number of travel bursaries and we request that you consider funding one of these. The grants will be used by sponsored students and early-stage postdocs to partially pay for airfares and/or accommodation. Additionally, we would also like to award a prize for the best student poster. The cost of sponsoring a travel bursary is £350 or equivalent in Euros/US Dollars, and that of the best poster award is £225. The award funds will be payable directly to the successful awardees. Further information about the travel grants can be found on the following link:


We hope that you will agree to contribute some funds towards ensuring the next generation of aptamer researchers can learn from their peers at this official conference of INSOAP. We would be grateful if you could respond before the 21 January 2019 so that we are able to advertise these bursaries to potential students and provide sufficient time for processing of applications prior to the closing date of abstracts.

We will ensure that your company receives appropriate acknowledgement of your support on the Society’s and the Symposium’s websites.
