Transportation

Trinity University’s HHMI Program will cover the travel expenses for the first 16 institutions that submit abstracts for the conference. Other participants should be supported by funds from your institution. Most participants will be traveling by air to San Antonio. Please contact the TU-HHMI Grant Coordinator, Kimberly Cabe at kmessers@trinity.edu to arrange for flights to be covered by TU-HHMI. If more than one participant is attending the conference from your institution, we ask that you let us arrange the TU-HHMI flight first to insure that costs are kept as reasonable as possible.

In your email to our Grant Coordinator, please include the following:

  • Preferred departure airport (please include airport code, if known)
  • Alternate departure airport (if appliable) (please inclulde airport code, if known)
  • Desired departure time on Thursday, October 11th
  • Desired departure time on Saturday, October 13th (or other date, if extending your stay in San Antonio)
  • Preferred carrier (if possible) (if you would like, please include your frequent flier number)
  • Your contact phone number we will provide when booking your flight
  • Your name as it appears on your driver's license
  • Your date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy)
  • Desired seating (asile, window, center)
  • Any explanatory notes or special requests

Travel arrangements will be made and communicated to travelers as quickly as possible to facilitate coordinating travel for other attendees from your institution.

If you are traveling by car to San Antonio, TU-HHMI will reimburse you for mileage at the rate of 55.5 cents per mile. The reimbursement for travel by car must be less than the cost of airfare. Your registration package will include a travel reimbursement form for this purpose.

Automobile rental is available at the airport. To obtain a cab from the airport, simply walk outside towards the cab area.
