Young Physician-Scientist Awards

The ASCI Council Young Physician-Scientist Awards, initiated in 2013, recognize young physician-scientists who are supported by NIH K or similar significant career-development awards, are early in their first faculty appointment, and have made notable achievements in their research.

Nominations for 2017

We are pleased to call for nominations for the ASCI’s 2017 Young Physician-Scientist Awards. This is an excellent opportunity
for a young faculty member to be recognized at the 2017 Joint Meeting.

We seek nominations 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.

Those selected for this Awards program will:

  • receive a $500 honorarium
  • attend the 2017 Joint Meeting, April 21-23, at the Fairmont Chicago
  • attend the invitation-only ASCI President’s Reception on Friday, April 21
  • present their work at the ASCI’s Food & Science Evening, Saturday, April 22

Up to 40 Awards will be given for 2017. The following materials are required for nominations, which must be submitted online on or before the deadline, January 16, 2017, at 11:59 pm, U.S. Eastern:

Nominations can only be made by ASCI members through their online accounts.
