Nominations for the ASCI’s 2018 Stanley J. Korsmeyer Award are now open. This coming year represents a milestone for the Award — 20 years of recognizing the outstanding achievements of ASCI member physician-scientists. The recognition, first called the ASCI Award, was renamed in 2006 in honor of Dr. Korsmeyer, the first recipient of the Award in 1998, who passed away in 2005. The Korsmeyer Award recognizes individuals for their advancement of knowledge in a specific field and mentoring of future generations of life science researchers. Information on all past honorees is available here.
Nominees for the Stanley J. Korsmeyer Award must be ASCI members who are 55 years of age or younger as of January 1, 2018. They shall have made significant contributions to biomedical science and shall have adhered to the principles of scientific excellence that the ASCI exemplifies. The nominee should have a record that reflects high standards of intellectual integrity, a deep and abiding respect for the community of biomedical scientists, and a strong commitment to mentoring the next generation of physician-scientists. Prior nominees may be re-nominated. However, current ASCI Council members and prior Award recipients may not be nominated.
Nominations consist of:
- a summary of the nominee’s accomplishments (in plain text, not to exceed 250 words),
- a brief NIH biosketch (as a PDF),
- a full curriculum vitae, including all publications and invited lectures (as a PDF),
