Carl Ludwig Distinguished Lecture of the APS Neural Control & Autonomic Regulation Section

The Carl Ludwig Lectureship Award is one of 12 APS distinguished lectureship awards named after outstanding contributors to different areas of physiology as represented by the 12 APS sections. This award honors the achievements of Carl Ludwig, a prominent professor of physiology in the mid and late 1800s. There is scarcely any branch of physiology to which Ludwig did not make important contributions, but he is honored here for his interests and important advancements he made in the function of secretory neurons and the discovery of spinally projecting 'vasomotor' neurons in the medulla, giving birth to the concept of control of cardiovascular and other autonomic functions through neural and neural-secretory reflexes. Above all, Dr. Ludwig placed an important emphasis on the training of future physiologists, and as such, he helped launch the careers of several eminent physiologists including Adolf Fick, Otto Frank, and Henry Bowditch.
 
The Carl Ludwig Award honors a world-renowned, distinguished investigator who has made major contributions toward a better understanding of some aspect of autonomic regulation in normal and/or disease states. It is the most prestigious award offered by the Neural Control and Autonomic Regulation (NCAR) section of APS. The recipient is chosen by the NCAR section steering committee as a representative of the best within this discipline who is actively involved in innovative and productive research.  The recipient’s body of research should be particularly stimulating, such that the presentation of this work would contribute to interest in, and growth of, the NCAR section and research in the field.  The applicant need not be a current member of the NCAR Section or APS, but contributions to the advancement of the autonomic field in all aspects of the discipline are considered in the selection process (research impact, participation in APS or other autonomic-related societies, dissemination of knowledge through writings and conferences, mentoring of investigators within the autonomic community, and other related activities). The awardee will present a 45 minute lecture with discussion, chair a minisymposium immediately following the lecture on a topic related to his/her lecture, and actively participate in NCAR functions at the Experimental Biology meeting. He or she will receive a $1,000 honorarium and up to $2,000 to cover travel and per diem expenses incurred during the meeting. Prior recipients of the award are not eligible for re-nomination, but prior unsuccessful nominations are welcome and encouraged for resubmission.
 
Nominations for the award must be accompanied by two or more letters of recommendation that highlight the nominee's accomplishments toward the award along with the nominee's CV.

The letters of recommendation must be from NCAR members (primary or secondary affiliation) for the nomination.  The material must be sent to me hschultz@unmc.edu by the end of the day on Monday, March 16, 2014

The Michael J. Brody Young Investigator Award sponsored by ADInstruments of the APS Neural Control and Autonomic Regulation Section (NCAR) ($500 plus reimbursement of the advance registration fee) recognizes a promising young investigator who has made a significant research contribution to the understanding of neural control and autonomic regulation. The award is open to graduate students (post-candidacy exams) and to postdoctoral and clinical fellows or equivalent (within 5 years from degree [month/year] to the date of award application deadline). The applicant must be an APS member in good standing with a primary affiliation in the NCAR Section. 

Applicants must submit: 1) a first-authored abstract to any appropriate NCAR topic at the Experimental Biology meeting; 2) an NCAR Biosketch (use only the NCAR biosketch form provided here) written by the applicant that includes a one-page personal statement summarizing the applicants research contributions, a complete list of publications and abstracts (listed separately), and any grants, fellowships and awards; 3) a letter of recommendation from the sponsor. Eligible candidates must indicate the date [month/year] of completion of the post candidacy exam (graduate students) or the date [month/year] of completion of the doctoral degree program (postdoctoral applicant).

Award criteria will be based on current work reflected in the abstract and overall contributions to the field. The awardee will be expected to present her/his abstract at the NCAR Trainee Featured Topic session at the Experimental Biology meeting to receive the cash prize and to be recognized at the NCAR Reception and Business Meeting. While there is no limit to the number of times an individual can apply for this award, the winner is eligible to win this award once only.

All application materials must be completed online by November 10, 2014.


The Neural Control and Autonomic Regulation Section (NCAR) 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 NCAR 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, Research Investigator, etc.). Eligible candidates must not have held the rank of Assistant Professor or equivalent for more than 5 years [month/year] from the date of award application deadline. Applicants also must not have held an advanced degree (PhD, MD, DVM or equivalent) for more than 10 years [month/year] from the date of award application deadline. The applicant must be an APS member in good standing with a primary affiliation in the NCAR Section.

Applicants must submit: 1) an NCAR Biosketch (use only the NCAR biosketch form provided here) written by the applicant that includes a one-page personal statement summarizing the applicants research contributions, a complete list of publications and abstracts (listed separately), and grants, fellowships and awards; 2) written nominations from two regular members of the APS; 3) three reprints from published articles (first or senior authored). Unpublished or submitted manuscripts or review articles will not be accepted.

Candidates will be evaluated on the quality and impact of their publications, the relation of their publications to neural control and autonomic regulation, and evidence of independence and promise (grant funding, peer review activities, etc.). Although this is not an abstract-based award, the awardee will be expected to present a talk at the NCAR Trainee Featured Topic session at the Experimental Biology meeting to receive the cash prize and to be recognized at the NCAR Reception and Business Meeting. In addition, the awardee is expected to make a 25-min oral presentation at the EB meeting and to submit a first author publication, based on his/her presentation, to AJP Regul. Integr. Comp. by July 1st following the meeting. While there is no limit to the number of times an individual can apply for the award, the winner is eligible to win this award once only.

All application materials must be completed online by November 10, 2014.
