NEW: The Mildred Cohn Award in Biological Chemistry
The Mildred Cohn Award in Biological Chemistry was established to honor the pioneering scientific accomplishments and the spirit of the late Cohn, who was the first female president of the American Society for Biochemistry and Moleculr Biology, at the time known as the American Society of Biological Chemists. The award recognizes and honors scientists at all stages of their careers who have made substantial advances in understanding biological chemistry using innovative physical approaches. Nominations must be made by ASBMB members, but the nominees need not be ASBMB members. The award will be given annually and carries a $5,000 prize and travel expenses to the annual meeting to present a lecture. Click here to nominate.

UPDATED: The Herbert Tabor Research Award and Lectureship
The Herbert Tabor Research Award and Lectureship was established to recognize the many contributions of Herbert Tabor to the Journal of Biological Chemistry and the society. The award will be given for excellence in biological chemistry and molecular biology and contributions to the community of scientists. The ASBMB seeks to be the first to recognize outstanding accomplishments. Nominations must originate from and nominees must be ASBMB members. The award consists of a $30,000 research award, a plaque and travel expenses for the annual meeting to present a lecture. Click here to nominate.

The Alice and C. C. Wang Award in Molecular Parisitology 
The Alice and C. C. Wang Award in Molecular Parisitology recognizes established investigators 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 originate 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 continues an active effort at the cutting edge of research. The award consists 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. In addition, the winner will organize a half-day symposium on molecular parisitology at the meeting. Click here to nominate.

The ASBMB-Merck Award
The ASBMB-Merck Award recognizes outstanding contributions to research in biochemistry and molecular biology. Nominations must originate from ASBMB members, but nominees need not be members. The award consists of a plaque, $5,000 and transportation and expenses to the annual meeting to present a lecture. Click here to nominate.

The William C. Rose Award
The William C. Rose Award recognizes outstanding contributions to biochemical and molecular biological research and a demonstrated commitment to the training of younger scientists, as epitomized by the late Rose. Nominations must originate from ASBMB members, but nominees need not be members. The award consists of a plaque, $3,000 and transportation to the annual meeting to present a lecture.

The Earl and Thressa Stadtman Distinguished Scientist Award
The Earl and Thressa Stadtman Distinguished Scientist Award was established by the couple’s friends and colleagues to preserve their legacies as scientists and mentors. It is awarded to an established scientist for his or her outstanding achievement in basic research in the fields encompassed by the ASBMB. The award is given every other year, alternating with The Earl and Thressa Stadtman Young Scholar Award. Nominations must originate from ASBMB members, but nominees need not be members. The award consists of a plaque, a $10,000 cash award and travel expenses for the annual meeting to present a lecture. Click here to nominate.

The DeLano Award for Computational Biosciences
The DeLano Award for Computational Biosciences was established by family, friends and colleagues to honor the legacy of Warren L. DeLano. The award is given to a scientist for the most accessible and innovative development or application of computer technology to enhance research in the life sciences at the molecular level. The contribution should include two key elements – more productive use of computers to accelerate and facilitate research and ready access of these programs for the scientific community. Nominations must originate from ASBMB members, but nominees need not be members. The award consists of a plaque, $3,000 and travel expenses for the recipient to give a lecture at the annual meeting.
