Award Description: The ASIP Young Scientist Leadership Award recognizes outstanding and sustained achievements at the earliest stages of a career in biomedical research. This award is supported by the A.D. Sobel – ASIP Education Fund. The award will be conferred on a young scientist with accomplishments that include exceptional volunteered service and/or leadership within the ASIP, as well as achievements that form the foundation for a successful career as an experimental pathology researcher (scientific publications, scientific presentations at national/international meetings, and awards for excellent research). The Meritorious Awards Committee will consider the extent and nature of the nominee’s involvement/engagement in Society activities/programs, as well as other characteristics associated with early career scientists (research productivity and impact). The ASIP Young Scientist Leadership awardee is recognized each year at the ASIP Annual Meeting, where the selected awardee delivers an Award Lecture.
Award Eligibility: Eligible candidates for the ASIP Young Scientist Leadership Award must be an ASIP member in continuous good standing for at least two years immediately prior to nomination.
