A big thank you to eLife for awarding me a travel grant! eLife is a fantastic organisation that publishes and supports the life and biomedical sciences. It runs a little differently to many other journals in that it is led by scientists and actively works to support EMCR’s (Early and Mid-career researchers). I published a paper with them in 2018 about the enigmatic stem-osteichthyan, Ligulalepis. My experience working with them was overwhelmingly positive and I’d very much like the opportunity to do so again.
I was one of seven researchers worldwide awarded a travel grant by eLife recently. (You can read about the other recipients here). This grant will help me to attend the upcoming International Symposium on Early and Lower Vertebrates in Qujing, China and present my work on the iconic Devonian tetrapodomorph fish, Gogonasus.
Thank you, eLife!
