Request For Nominations
Outstanding Paper by a Junior Investigator Award
The American Journal of Physiology – Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology is always striving to serve the pulmonary community by highlighting important papers in all aspects of basic, translational and mechanism-driven clinical research. Thus, we invite nominations for “The Outstanding Paper by a Junior Investigator” published in AJP-Lung in 2012-2013.
The nominees must hold an academic rank no higher than Assistant Professor and be the first author of a paper which has clearly advanced the field. Post-doctoral fellows and graduate students are also eligible. Five awards will be given annually and two of the awards will be reserved for graduate students. Each awardee will receive a $500 cash award and a commemorative plaque to be presented during the annual Experimental Biology meeting at the American Physiological Society Respiration Section Trainee Highlights Breakfast on the morning of Sunday, April 27, 2014. The awardees will be expected to contribute either a short “state of the art” review on their topic or an original paper to AJP-Lung within six months of receiving the award.
Please send nominations along with a brief statement of the impact of this paper on its field and the nominee’s CV to Sadis Matalon, PhD, Dr.Sc. (Hon.), Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Physiology – Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 1, 2014.
