Call for nominations: 2019 Young Physician-Scientist Awards

The ASCI is pleased to call for nominations for the ASCI’s 2019 Young Physician-Scientist Awards. This is an excellent opportunity for a young faculty member to be recognized at the 2019 Joint Meeting.

We seek nominations from ASCI members of outstanding physician-scientists who have recently received their first faculty appointment (preferably in the last 5 years).

Nominees must be funded by a current NIH K or equivalent career-development award (in or outside the United States). However, we welcome nominations of NIH intramural physician-scientists on the basis of their appointment only. See nomination form for detail.

Those selected for this Awards program will:

  • receive a $500 travel award to attend the 2019 Joint Meeting, April 5-7, at the Fairmont Chicago
  • present their work at the ASCI’s Food & Science Evening, Saturday, April 6

Up to 40 Awards will be given for 2019. The following materials are required for nominations, which must be submitted by nominating members through their accounts on or before the deadline, December 14, 2018, at 11:59 pm, U.S. Eastern (extended from December 3, 2018):
