    The Endocrinology and Metabolism Section New Investigator Award ($1,000 plus reimbursement of the advance registration fee) recognizes 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 Endocrinology & Metabolism 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.) and must be within 10 years of their terminal degree (Ph.D. M.D., D.V.M., etc). They should receive nominations from at least two regular members of the APS.

Although this is not an abstract-based award, awardees are expected to attend EB and make an oral or poster presentation. Also, the recipient is expected to submit a brief review article in her/his area of research interest to the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism for publication within one year of receiving the award. The candidate must be an APS member in good standing with a primary affiliation in the Endocrinology and Metabolism Section.
