The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) Career and Postdoctoral Services Office in Florida has announced recipients of the 2014 Robert M. Sandelman Awards for Scientific Excellence, supporting travel expenses to scientific conferences.

Massimiliano Aceti, research associate in the Rumbaugh lab, won a $1,500 award to attend an international conference, the 25th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Neurochemistry in Cairns, Australia.

Receiving $1,000 awards to attend a domestically hosted conference are:

  • Jun Yong Choi, senior research associate in the Roush lab, for the 249th American Chemical Society National Meeting in Denver, Colorado.
  • William Pryor, research associate in the Subramaniam lab, for the 10th Annual Huntington’s Disease Therapeutic Conference in Palm Springs, California.
  • Darci Trader, research associate in the Kodadek lab, for the Gordon Research Conference for High Throughput Chemistry and Chemical Biology in New London, New Hampshire.

Recognizing outstanding scientific achievement and accomplishment, the awards are funded through the Boca Raton-based Sandelman Foundation, established by sales promotion pioneer Robert Sandelman, who established the first sales promotion agency in the United States and created the American Express Gold Card.
