Mildred Cohn Award in Biological Chemistry
The Mildred Cohn Award in Biological Chemistry 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 originate with society members, but the nominees need not be ASBMB members. Self-nominations are accepted.
The award will be given annually and consists of a plaque, $5,000 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 the ASBMB, which at the time was known as the American Society of Biological Chemists.
