Your help is needed in identifying and nominating distinguished scientists for the 2013 ASM General Meeting Awards. This is your chance to honor those who have greatly contributed to the field of microbiology. These awards honor the most outstanding accomplishments in research, mentoring, education, leadership, and other practices of microbiology. Two particular awards of interest are the Abbott-ASM Lifetime Achievement Award and the Eli Lilly and Company Research Award.
Abbott-ASM Lifetime Achievement Award: ASM’s premier award for sustained contributions to the microbiological sciences.
Eli Lilly and Company Research Award: ASM’s oldest and most prestigious prize, it rewards fundamental research of unusual merit in microbiology or immunology by an individual who has not reached his/her 45th birthday.
The nomination forms and more information regarding eligibility, the nomination process, and other ASM Awards can be found at http://bit.ly/zmhpbg. A complete nomination typically consists of a nominating form, the nominee’s CV, and two supporting forms. These forms are all very brief (250 words). Nominations are due July 1.
