Bio-Techne Travel Grants

Bio-Techne’s Go Everywhere Travel Grant Program awards $1000 USD (or equivalent) to one researcher each month to attend the meeting of their choice. This grant program allows the researcher to attend more targeted meetings in their field and provides funding to support both small and large scientific associations that promote discovery and collaboration.

The recipient of the June 2018 grant is Lucy McDermott, a PhD Student in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford in Oxford, England.

Travel Grant Winner Lucy McDermott

Lucy McDermott, a PhD Student at the University of Oxford is the June 2018 recipient of the Bio-Techne Go Everywhere Travel Grant.

Lucy has chosen to apply the grant to attend the IASP's World Congress on Pain in Boston, MA USA on September 12-16, 2018!

Her research focuses on the role of the voltage gated sodium channel NaV1.7 in human nociception. Lucy’s work uses iPSC-derived nociceptors in combination with CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing to functionally characterize NaV1.7 in a human model system.

Bio-Techne and our brands are proud to support Lucy’s work and the work of the many researchers that have applied to our travel grant program so far this year. If you are interested in applying for any of our travel grants, please go to
