More about the awards:


Alice and C. C. Wang Award in Molecular Parasitology
The Alice and C. C. Wang Award recognizes established investigators who are making seminal contributions to the field of molecular parasitology. Novel and significant discoveries on the biology of parasitic organisms are of particular emphasis. The areas of research to be awarded are limited to protozoan parasites but otherwise broadly defined, including, but not limited to, biochemistry, molecular biology, gene regulation, metabolism, cell biology, development biology and host–pathogen interactions. Nominations must come from ASBMB members, and self-nominations are acceptable. The recipient should be an internationally recognized scientific leader who already has made important discoveries in the field and who is continuing an active effort at the cutting edge of research. The award will consist of $35,000 for use by the recipient’s research laboratory, a plaque and travel expenses for the recipient to attend the ASBMB annual meeting to present a lecture on his/her work. In addition, the winner will organize a half-day symposium at the ASBMB annual meeting focusing on molecular parasitology. Read about the 2012 winner. NOMINATE SOMEONE FOR THIS AWARD.
