ASBMB Young Investigator Award

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 ASBMB Annual Meeting, the 2020 Annual Awards will be presented at the 2021 ASBMB Annual Meeting in Indianapolis.

Nominations for the 2022 ASBMB Annual Awards will open in early 2021.

The ASBMB Young Investigator Award (formerly the ASBMB/Schering–Plough Research Institute 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 ASBMB annual meeting.
