The Canada FASD Research Network has a limited amount of funding to support travel for our Network researchers and trainees in order to enhance their research experience in the area of knowledge dissemination and sharing. Reimbursement of travel related expenses will be awarded for Network researchers and/or trainees presenting at national or international conferences.
The Dr. Sterling Clarren FASD Research Award has been named in honor of Dr. Sterling Clarren to recognize his pioneering contribution and leadership in the field of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). The award will be presented annually to an individual in recognition of a completed study that has made a substantial contribution to the FASD field in one of Canada FASD Research Network’s (CanFASD) member provinces/territories. Special consideration will be given to those applicants’ who focus on an area identified by CanFASD as a research priority and include a knowledge translation component or to early career investigators who are undertaking work in the field of FASD for the first time.
