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.

 



The Michael J. Brody Young Investigator Award 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.
