Students and Trainees

Hypoxia welcomes and supports student and trainees as delegates. Discounted registration, room blocks at discounted rates, and ample recognition as scientists-in-training all contribute to making Hypoxia a great meeting for students from all biomedical fields who are interested in hypoxia.

A student who submits an abstract is automatically entered in a competition for Hypoxia awards. A panel of judges will review the abstracts and visit posters/presentations during the meeting. The awards will be announced at the evening banquet on Saturday evening.

Student/Fellowship Discount

To qualify for the student or fellow discount you must fax/email a letter on Department or School stationary with the signature of the appropriate Dean, Department Chair or other senior administrative faculty stating that you are a student or fellow in the program in good standing.

Privacy and Security

We promise to do everything we can to protect your privacy and the security of your transactions on our sites.

Steps we have taken to ensure your personal information is safe with Hypoxia include:

We do not distribute names, emails and addresses. The only exceptions are when a closely affilliated group requests email addresses. The organizers consider each request on a case by case basis; such mailings average one or two per year.

Your contact information and credit card information are stored in an encrypted offline data base. Even if someone stole the database they could not use it without the correct username and password. The encryption we use is essentially unbreakable.  

We intend that these procedures will allow you to participate fully in the electronic world of Hypoxia 2017.
