Five emerging scientists and a mentor of their choosing have received travel awards to attend ASHA’s 21st annual Research Symposium, which will be held at the 2011 ASHA Convention in San Diego.
The Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award (RMPTA) program is designed to foster the professional development of students and early-stage scientists through their participation in the Research Symposium and associated mentoring activities. The symposium and travel awards are co-sponsored by ASHA and the National Institute of Deafness and Communication Disorder through a conference grant awarded to ASHA.
The Nov. 19 symposium, “Neurological Bases of Auditory and Speech Perception,” is open to all convention participants and requires no pre-registration. Presentations include neuroimaging and language disorders; cortical organization of feedback control and predictive coding; cognitive-neuroscience of normal and abnormal hearing in children; and the biological impact of music and auditory training.
The following protégé-mentor pairs are the recipients of the 2011 RMPTA:
  • Sophie Ambrose, Boys Town National Research Hospital—Emily Tobey, University of Texas at Dallas

  • Reethee Antony, City University of New York—Brett Martin, City University of New York

  • Stephanie Nagle, Towson University—Dana Boatman, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

  • Rene Utianski, Arizona State University—Julie Liss, Arizona State University

  • Krystal Werfel, Vanderbilt University—Mary Pat Moeller, Boys Town National Research Hospital
