A critical part of the ADAA mission is to support research in the areas of anxiety, stress, and related disorders. Open to graduate students and early career professionals, the Career Development Travel Awards and the Donald F. Klein Early Career Investigator Award further that goal.
Awards are given to help early career professionals with a research interest in anxiety disorders and depression such as basic and clinical neurobiology and psychopharmacology, clinical psychology, genetics, neuroimaging, epidemiology, and public health, as well as other areas.
