    The Cell and Molecular Physiology Section will award ONE New Investigator Award ($1,000 plus reimbursement of the advance Experimental Biology meeting registration fee) recognizing an outstanding investigator in the early stages of his/her career. Candidates should be investigators who have made meritorious contributions to the area represented by the Cell Section. They should not be above the rank of Assistant Professor or a comparable position in a research track at an academic institution or in industry (e.g. Scientist, Sr. Scientist, Research Investigator, etc.). They should receive nominations from at least two regular members of the APS. Candidates will be judged on their publications, how the publications relate to the Cell Section, and evidence for independence and promise (grant funding, peer review activities, etc.). Although this is not an abstract-based award, eligibility requires that awardees submit an abstract under a Cell Section Topic Category, attend the EB Meeting, and make an oral or poster presentation. Unlike the other Cell Section awards, they need not be first author of the submission, but are anticipated to be senior author. Abstracts must be submitted by the EB abstract submission deadline, and then all additional application materials must be completed online by December 31 of the same year. The candidate must be an APS member in good standing and have primary affiliation with the Cell Section.

    Candidates must upload: curriculum vitae, 2 nomination letters from APS members, and 3 publication reprints. Awardee will be recognized at the Cell Section Dinner at the EB Meeting. As per APS rules, the candidate must attend the Experimental Biology meeting in order to be eligible for the award. Only one application per candidate will be accepted for any specific year and this award can only be obtained once.

    The 12 Distinguished Lectureship Awards are named after outstanding contributors to the disciplinary areas of physiology represented by the 12 APS Sections. The recipient is chosen by the Section as a representative of the best within the discipline. Lecturers present and are active participants at the Experimental Biology meeting. Each year, four of the 12 lecturers give plenary lectures that incorporate the main meeting topic. In the years that sections do not have plenary lectures, the lecturer presents one hour of a featured topic programmed by the section. Each recipient receives a $1,000 honorarium and up to $2,000 to cover travel and per diem expenses incurred during the meeting.
