Applications are now being accepted for trainees interested in joining the SRS Trainee Subcommittee for 2024-2025. If you’re a trainee who wants to play a pivotal role in shaping trainee activities at SLEEP 2025 in Seattle, WA, we invite you to apply.

Preference will be given to trainee members of the SRS who have previously applied and have yet to be selected for the subcommittee. We hope to assemble a subcommittee of trainees with diverse research interests from broad geographic areas representing the trainees within the society.
