Call for Nominations: John J. Abel Award in Pharmacology
Deadline for submissions is September 15, 2012.
The John J. Abel Award in Pharmacology, named after the founder of the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) and sponsored by Pfizer, was established to stimulate fundamental research in pharmacology and experimental therapeutics by young investigators. The annual Award consists of $5,000, a plaque, hotel, and economy airfare for the winner and spouse to the award ceremony at the annual meeting of ASPET. The winner will be invited to give a lecture at the annual meeting.
Nominees for this award shall not have passed his/her forty-fifth birthday by September 15 (nomination deadline) of the year in which s/he is nominated. The candidate need not be a member of the Society; however, the nomination must be made by an ASPET member. No member may nominate more than one candidate a year, and no candidate may be nominated for more than one major ASPET award in any given year.
The Award shall be made for original, outstanding research in the field of pharmacology and/or experimental therapeutics. Independence of thought, originality of approach, clarity, and excellence of data presentation are important criteria. Candidates shall not be judged in comparison with the work of more mature and experienced investigators. Quality rather than the number of contributions shall be emphasized. It shall be the responsibility of the sponsor to make clear the contribution of the candidate to any jointly authored reprints and manuscripts and the originality and independence of the candidate’s research. Selection will be made by the ASPET Awards Committee, appointed by the President of ASPET.
Nominations must be submitted electronically to email@example.com and shall consist of:
Letter of nomination with a summary that describes the importance of the candidate’s work.
Brief biographical sketch of the candidate.
Candidate's curriculum vitae and bibliography.
Six published articles or manuscripts accepted for publication that are a representation of the candidate's work (provided as PDFs or as hyperlinks to the article). Submit each manuscript as a separate attachment.
Nominations for this award must be received no later than 5:00 pm (EST) on September 15, 2012 for an award to be presented at Experimental Biology ’13 in Boston, MA.
The John J. Abel Award is sponsored by Pfizer, which is pleased to support the recognition of young scientists who will provide the breakthroughs of tomorrow.
