Next Generation Investigator Awards

CASSS recognizes the challenges faced by graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and early career professionals in launching and navigating a career and building a professional network. Through our Next Generation Investigator (NGI) Awards, we encourage participation in our Symposia and Fora with travel awards for participants from around the world.

CASSS meetings tend to be small, collegial events with career-advancing opportunities to network with leading industrial and government researchers, developers of cutting-edge instrumentation and methods, as well as biotherapeutic regulators and policymakers.



CASSS defines NGIs as individuals from around the world that are either currently in full or nearly full-time study for a formal academic qualification (e.g. degree, PhD), or have less than 4 years from the commencement of their first postdoctoral or first professional industrial or governmental position. NGIs can be in academia, government, industry, or any other organization that participates in the field of biopharmaceutical development and may be based anywhere in the world. Career breaks will be recognized.

Required for consideration:

  • Fill out the form for the Symposium or Forum in the Apply Now section.
  • Include a recommendation letter from an advisor and/or supervisor.
  • Recipients will have the opportunity to present (oral or poster), provide a written synopsis, or other assignments as agreed upon with the Program Manager.

Why Apply

Each Symposium and Forum gives insight into current topics and issues in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. Award winners will get the opportunity to meet, network, and participate in exchanging knowledge for mutual education with other members.

Awards include:

  • Waived registration to attend.
  • Stipend is disseminated in local currency to offset the cost of travel. Stipend amount is determined by distance traveled.
