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 Eric Lazartigues, Ph.D., at  elazar@lsuhsc.edu by the end of the day on Monday, March 13, 2017

 After earning a PhD in Pharmacology from the University of Michigan in 1961, Michael J. Brody joined the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Iowa where he established himself as a highly effective and respected educator and mentor, a leading figure in collegiate and university governance, and an internationally-honored scientist for his contributions to understanding the role of the central nervous system in the mechanisms of hypertension. Dr. Brody received many awards during his distinguished career, including the Okamoto Award (1987) and the CIBA Award for Hypertension Research (1990). The awards Dr. Brody valued most however, were those he received for outstanding instruction from medical and other students. He mentored more than 20 doctoral students, more than 40 postdoctoral fellows and influenced countless others who passed through the graduate program.

The Michael J. Brody Young Investigator Award Sponsored by ADInstruments ($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 3 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 of unpublished work 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) two letters of recommendation from the applicant's advisor. 4) Eligible candidates must provide verifiable documentation of 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, overall contributions to the field based upon the biosketch and the letters of recommendation. The awardee will be expected to present her/his abstract at the NCAR Awards Featured Topic oral and poster sessions at the Experimental Biology meeting to receive the cash prize and to be recognized at the NCAR Reception and Business Meeting.

The NCARnation Trainee Presentation Award
Starting in 2014, a member of NCAR committed to anonymously sponsor a trainee award for a period of 10 years with the requirement that NCAR trainees would be given the opportunity to make an oral presentation at the Experimental Biology meeting to showcase their research. As of 2017, another NCAR member will match the donation to allow for a second award to be given to a postdoctoral trainee.

The NCARnation session provides 12 selected trainees with an opportunity to give a brief oral presentation (5 min) during the Experimental Biology meeting. Abstracts are selected among all the abstracts submitted by NCAR trainees to an NCAR topic  by a committee composed of the NCAR trainee representative and former NCARnation participants. During the oral presentation, the judges (members of the NCAR steering committee) rank the speakers based on the following criteria: significance, innovation, clarity of the presentation, familiarity with the field, ability to answer questions. The best presentations by a graduate student and a postdoctoral fellow are presented with the NCARnation award ($250).
