United Leukodystrophy Foundation Young Scientist Award Competition

The United Leukodystrophy Foundation (ULF) is soliciting research
abstracts from Graduate Students and Post-doctoral Fellows
for oral presentation at the ULF Scientific Meeting on July 8, 2010
in DeKalb, IL. The presenters will compete for the “2010 Young
Scientist Award” given to the graduate student/fellow who has
made the most significant contribution to leukodystrophy research.
The abstracts should be no more than 300 words long and summarize
basic science or clinically oriented research on leukodystrophies
conducted by the graduate student or fellow. Applicants with
faculty appointments may not apply. The ULF Research Committee

questions. The ULF will provide costs for registration, housing and
meals for the Scientific Symposium Meeting. Applicants are responsible
for their own travel costs to the meeting. The winner of
the Young Scientist Award will receive a certificate and be invited
back to a future ULF meeting with all expenses paid. Abstracts
