2020 award winners
Among the unquestionable highlights of every American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology annual meeting are lectures by the society’s award winners. These awards are given to outstanding professionals who have been recognized by their peers for contributions to their fields, education and diversity.
On the following pages, we introduce the dozen distinguished scientists who will be honored at the 2020 annual meeting, April 4 – 7 in San Diego. Our contributing and staff writers talked to them about their professional journeys and the research they plan to discuss in their lectures.
As you read these profiles, think about the outstanding scientists you know. We hope you’ll be inspired to nominate one of them (or yourself) for an award. Nominations for the 2021 awards will be accepted March 2 – May 11, 2020. Nominating instructions will be posted on our meetings website.
