Travel, Present, Publish

The Society for Leukocyte Biology (SLB) and their journal, JLB, support researchers at all career levels. Learn more about the numerous awards and programs sponsored by the society and journal in supporting members’ traveling to conferences, presenting their work and publishing research.

In addition to the numerous awards SLB offers in conjunction with the society's annual meeting, SLB and JLB also support guest symposiums at other meetings (see examples). SLB also presents Trainee Award certificates to random, unsuspecting trainees presenting at local and national meetings. These are awarded by our SLB Ambassadors to trainees presenting merit worthy research. Contact us to learn more.
