The Sleep Research Society (SRS) announces funds to be made available for selected sleep/circadian investigators to attend NIH, University or Research Institute/Society offered basic and advanced courses in “omics” technologies to support career development in sleep/circadian omics based biomarker research. The aim of the award is to grow the research workforce of investigators conducting sleep/circadian biomarker development. Research areas of interest may include the development of biomarkers for sleep deprivation, insufficient sleep, fragmented sleep, circadian misalignment, and sleep and circadian disorders. The SRS will provide support to reimburse course registration fees up to $2,500 to attend organized courses on the omics topics such as, but not limited to: Functional Genomics (Transcriptomics), Metabolomics, Lipidomics and/or Proteomics, ranging from sample processing through statistical analyses.
Preference will be given to attend multi-day/week-long in-depth courses. The SRS does not endorse any specific training courses as the course should be selected to fit the training needs of the individual. Example courses that may be considered for registration reimbursement/partial-registration reimbursement by the SRS may be found at SRS Sleep/Circadian “Omics” Research Training Award
