The Teaching of Physiology Section Research Recognition Awards provides two awards for outstanding posters presented in the Teaching Poster Sessions at Experimental Biology ($500 plus reimbursement of the advanced registration fee, and a complimentary ticket to the Section dinner). To qualify for this award, the applicant must be first author on the poster, and age 40 or under or within 10 years of receiving the Ph.D. or M.D. Applicants must be APS regular, affiliate, or student members. Abstracts will be reviewed and rated by the Teaching Section Steering Committee. The committee values research work that has not been recognized by this award. Thus, a previous research recognition award recipient may apply if the research work is not substantially related to the research associated with a past award. All poster abstracts must be formally submitted to EB by the abstract deadline. Applicants must upload a copy of the first-authored abstract. Awardees must attend the Experimental Biology meeting in order to collect the cash prize. The recipients are also recognized at the Teaching of Physiology Section Business Meeting.
