Nominations must be originated by Society members, but the nominees need not be ASBMB members. The Award will consist of a cash prize of $3,000, and the winner will present a plenary symposium lecture at the 2014 ASBMB Annual meeting. 

The ASBMB-Merck Award recognizes outstanding contributions to research in biochemistry and molecular biology. Nominations must be originated by Society members, but the nominees need not be ASBMB members. The Award consists of a plaque, $5,000, transportation, and expenses of the recipient and spouse to the 2014 ASBMB Annual Meeting to present a lecture. 

The ASBMB Young Investigator Award recognizes outstanding research contributions to biochemistry and molecular biology. The recipient must have no more than 15 years postdoctoral experience. Nominations must be originated by Society members, but nominees need not be ASBMB members. The Award consists of a plaque, $5,000, transportation, and expenses to present a lecture at the 2014 ASBMB Annual Meeting. 

The Avanti Award in Lipids recognizes outstanding research contributions in the area of lipids. Nominations must be originated by Society members, but the nominees need not be ASBMB members. The Award consists of a plaque, $3,000, and transportation and expenses to present a lecture at the 2014 ASBMB Annual Meeting. 

The Alice and C. C. Wang Award in Molecular Parasitology will recognize established investigators who are making seminal contributions to the field of molecular parasitology at the time of the award.  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 be originated by ASBMB members and self nominations are acceptable.  The Award recipient should be an internationally recognized scientific leader who has already made important discoveries in the field and continues 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 or her work.  In addition, the winner of the award will organize a half-day symposium at the ASBMB national meeting focusing on molecular Parasitology. 

 The Bert and Natalie Vallee Award in Biomedical Science was established by the Bert and N. Kuggie Vallee Foundation in 2012 to recognize international achievements in the sciences basic to medicine.  It is awarded to an established scientist for outstanding accomplishments in basic biomedical research.  Nominations must originate from ASBMB members; however, the nominee need not be an ASBMB member.  The Award consists of a $10,000 cash award, a plaque and travel expenses for attendance at the ASBMB Annual Meeting to present a lecture.  The first Award will be given in 2014. 

The DeLano Award for Computational Biosciences was established by family, friends and colleagues to honor the legacy of Warren L. DeLano.  The award will be 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 the nominee need not be an ASBMB member.  The Award consists of a plaque, a $3,000 cash award and travel expenses for the recipient to attend the ASBMB annual meeting to present a lecture. 

The Earl and Thressa Stadtman Scholar Award was established by their friends and colleagues to preserve their legacies as scientists and mentors.  It is awarded to a scientist with 10 years or less of post-postdoctoral experience, including medical residency and fellowship. The award will be given every other year, alternating with The Earl and Thressa Stadtman Distinguished Scientist Award.  Nominations must originate from ASBMB members, but the nominee need not be an ASBMB member.  The Award consists of a plaque, a $10,000 cash award and travel expenses for the ASBMB Annual Meeting to present a lecture.   

The Herbert A. Sober Lectureship recognizes outstanding biochemical and molecular biological research, with particular emphasis on development of methods and techniques to aid in research.  Nominations must be originated by Society members, but the nominees need not be ASBMB members.  The Lectureship provides a plaque, $3,000, transportation, and expenses to present a lecture at the 2014 ASBMB Annual Meeting. 

The Herbert Tabor Research Award The Herbert Tabor Research Award has been established by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology to recognize the many contributions of Dr. 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 the contributions to the community of scientists.  ASBMB seeks to be the first to recognize outstanding contributions. Nominations must originate from ASBMB members and the nominee must be a member of ASBMB.  The award consists of a $30,000 research award, a plaque and travel expenses for the ASBMB Annual Meeting to present a lecture. 

 The Mildred Cohn Award in Biological Chemistry was established to honor the pioneering scientific accomplishments and the spirit of the late Professor Cohn.  Dr. Cohn was the first female president of ASBMB, at the time known as the American Society of Biological Chemists.  The Award recognizes and honors scientists at all stages of their careers that have made substantial advances in understanding biological chemistry using innovative physical approaches. Nominations must be originated by Society members, but the nominees need not be ASBMB members.  The Award will be given annually and consists of an award$5,000 and travel expenses to the ASBMB Annual Meeting to present the Mildred Cohn Award lecture.
