Family Support

We recognize that early-stage researchers benefit significantly from symposia in their field and face some notable barriers to attendance including those researchers with families (with children and/or elderly family members in their care). These researchers face a dilemma as they struggle to attend key meetings and further their careers while finding care for their family. To address this challenge, we have implemented the following to help make it easier for those researchers to attend our meeting. Please email RNATherapeutics@UMassMed.edu if you have more suggestions or will require other resources while attending our meeting. We will do our best to accommodate your suggestions.

  • RNATx Family Support Awards: we have financial support awards available to help offset the costs for childcare (or eldercare) while attending our virtual symposium, or to enable a caregiver to travel to your location to assist with childcare. Click here for details on how to apply.
