Nominations are sought for the 2017 Young Investigator Award to be presented at the next INRC meeting in Chicago, Illinois, US.
The award is to honor a young investigator who is working in any area that contributes to the science on which our conference is based and who continues the ideals of the Founders of INRC. The award is open to young investigators from all types of organizations, including academia, industry, hospital and private or government institutes and others. A young investigator is defined as someone who at the time of nomination is under 40 years of age or, if over 40 has been in an independent position for no more than five years.
The recipient will receive a plaque, a monetary award to be used towards attending the INRC meeting, and will join the INRC program committee for the 2017 meeting. The expectation is that the winner will put together a Young Investigator Symposium, on a theme of his or her choosing.
Nominations should be from a senior scientist and include:
1. a nomination letter explaining why the young investigator is worthy of the award;
2. two supporting letters;
3. the nominee's CV.
Nominations should be sent electronically as a single pdf file attached to an email to Dr. Fred Nyberg by November 7, 2016.
Do you have a question you'd like the community to weigh in on? Maybe you'd like to ask your colleagues about the best experimental techniques to use in the lab, how to improve clinical care, or even about unpublished data? Now you can with PRF's new Q & A feature. Steve Davidson, U of Cincinnati, and Jeffrey Petruska, U of Louisville, have each posed a question--one about place preference boxes, the other about local anesthetics--to get things started. We'd love to hear what you have to say! Read more here.
