ASCI Council Young Physician-Scientist Awards Call for Nominations

We are pleased to call for nominations for the 2017 American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) Council Young Physician-Scientist Awards. We seek nominations of outstanding physician-scientists who are funded by NIH K or similar career-development awards, and who have recently received their first faculty appointment (preferably within the past 5 years). This is an excellent opportunity for a young faculty member to be recognized at the 2017 Joint Meeting.

Up to 40 Awards will be given for 2017. Those selected will:

  • receive a $500 travel stipend to attend the 2017 Joint Meeting, April 21-23, at the Fairmont Chicago
  • attend the ASCI President's Reception on Friday, April 21
  • present their work at the ASCI's Food & Science evening, Saturday, April 22

The following materials are required for nominations and must be submitted online through your member account (access information at the bottom of this e-mail) on or before the deadline: January 16, 2017:

  • nomination form, including a 250-word summary of the nominee's accomplishments and an abstract that the nominee would present at the meeting if selected for this recognition
  • brief NIH-style biosketch
