The Carl J. Wiggers Award is in honor of the Cardiovascular Section's founder, Carl J. Wiggers, whose research defined fundamental pressure-flow relationships in the cardiovascular system. In addition to publishing definitive texts in circulatory physiology, Dr. Wiggers founded Circulation Research and trained numerous future department heads as well as several presidents of the APS.

The Wiggers award is presented to a scientist who is a Fellow of the Cardiovascular Section of the APS, who has made outstanding contributions to cardiovascular research throughout their career, has been an active and committed member of the section, and who will attract outstanding new members to the Cardiovascular Section from the United States and abroad.

The Wiggers awardee will receive a $1,000 honorarium, a featured topic selected by the awardee plus complimentary registration to the 2018 EB Meeting at which the featured topic will be presented.

All application materials must be submitted by February 3, 2017 to be considered for the 2018 award.

Previous Winners are listed on the APS Cardiovascular Section website:

http://www.the-aps.org/mm/awards/sections/cvsecs

Application package:

-Biosketch in the current NIH format including descriptions of the applicant's contributions to cardiovascular research and no more than 15 most prominent publications
-2 Letters of Nomination: one from a past or current trainee, and the other of the applicant’s choice


 The Robert M. Berne Distinguished Lectureship is in honor of one of the most distinguished members of the Cardiovascular Section, Robert M. Berne, whose research focused on the local chemical regulation of tissue blood flow, with an emphasis on understanding the role of adenosine and how it elicits vasodilation. This award is presented to an emerging leader in cardiovascular research whose current research is particularly stimulating, such that the presentation of this work would contribute to interest in, and growth of, the Cardiovascular Section. The applicant need not be a current member or fellow of the CV Section but should be in a peak career stage of research innovation and productivity.

The Berne Lectureship awardee will receive a $1,000 honorarium, a lecture describing their research, plus complimentary registration to the 2018 EB meeting at which they present their lecture.

Eligible individuals should submit their application electronically through the APS website by February 3, 2017 to be considered for the 2018 award.

Cardiovascular Section Clinical Science Young Investigator Award sponsored by Portland press recognizes an outstanding junior investigator involved in cardiovascular research. To be eligible, the investigator must have earned an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree within the past 5 years, be an APS member in good standing with a primary affiliation in the Cardiovascular Section, and have submitted a first-authored abstract to the Experimental Biology Meeting. It is expected that the awardee will attend the 2017 Experimental Biology meeting and present his or her research.

The Clinical Science Young Investigator Awardee will receive $500 plus a complimentary personal subscription to Clinical Science online (http://www.clinsci.org/).

The awardee will be recognized at the Cardiovascular Section Banquet during the 2017 EB meeting.

Eligible individuals should submit their application electronically through the APS website by November 10, 2016.

Application package:
-Biosketch in the current NIH format including descriptions of the applicant's contributions to cardiovascular research and no more than 15 most prominent publications
-Abstract number
-Abstract first author’s full name
-PDF of abstract submission
 



  The Cardiovascular Section New Investigator Award was founded by the APS in 2002 and is made possible by the generous support of APS Strategic Partner, ADInstruments.  This award recognizes outstanding investigators in the early stages of their career who have made meritorious contributions to the scientific areas represented by the Cardiovascular Section of the APS. Candidates must be an APS member in good standing with a primary affiliation in the Cardiovascular Section and should not be above the rank of Assistant Professor or a comparable position in a research track at an academic institution or in industry. 

The New Investigator awardee will receive a $1,000 cash prize plus reimbursement of the EB meeting advanced registration fee.

The candidate must upload on the APS website their NIH-style biosketch including descriptions of the applicant's contributions to cardiovascular research and no more than 15 most representative publications, and a first- or senior-authored abstract from their laboratory that will be presented at 2017 EB meeting.

Candidates will be judged on their abstract, new research development(s), how their new area of investigation relates to the Cardiovascular Section, and evidence of their independence and promise (funding, peer review activities, etc.). The awardee must attend the 2017 Experimental Biology meeting in order to collect the cash prize.

The awardee will be recognized at the Cardiovascular Section Banquet during the 2017 EB meeting.

Eligible individuals should submit their application electronically through the APS website by November 10, 2016.

 Application package:
-Biosketch in the current NIH format including descriptions of the applicant's contributions to cardiovascular research and no more than 15 most prominent publications
-Abstract number

-Abstract First Author’s full name




 The Cardiovascular Section Outstanding Trainee Award was founded by the APS in 2017 and is made possible by the generous support of APS Strategic Partner, ADInstruments.  The award recognizes outstanding trainees who are on a trajectory to make meritorious contributions to the scientific areas represented by the Cardiovascular Section of the APS. Candidates must be an APS member in good standing with a primary affiliation in the Cardiovascular Section and should be classified as a trainee (e.g., graduate student, post-doctoral fellow, or equivalent) within an academic institution or in industry.

The Outstanding Trainee awardee will receive a $1,000 cash prize plus reimbursement of the registration fee for Experimental Biology.


The candidate must upload an NIH-style biosketch and a first-author abstract that they will present at Experimental Biology to the APS website.  The biosketch should include a listing of the applicant’s publications (may include abstracts) and a brief narrative describing the applicants training plan and how this plan will enable the applicant to address important unanswered questions in cardiovascular physiology in health and disease.


Candidates will be judged on their abstract, their potential for development into an independent investigator, and how their ongoing and proposed future areas of investigation relate to the Cardiovascular Section.  Service to the APS and CV Section will also be considered during the application evaluation process.


The awardee must attend and present their research at the Experimental Biology meeting to collect the cash prize, and the awardee will be recognized at the Cardiovascular Section Banquet at the meeting.

Eligible individuals should submit their application electronically through the APS website by November 10, 2016.

 Application package:
-Letter from Advisor, postdoctoral mentor, or Department Chair supporting the candidate.
-Biosketch in the current NIH format including descriptions of the applicant's training plan, how this training plan will help them address important unanswered questions in cardiovascular physiology, service to APS/CV Section, and a list of publications including abstracts.
