Paul M. Vanhoutte Distinguished Lectureship
in Vascular Pharmacology
Deadline for submission of nominations is September 15, 2013.
The Paul M. Vanhoutte Award in Vascular Pharmacology was established to honor Dr. Vanhoutte’s lifelong scientific contributions to our better understanding and appreciation of the importance of endothelial cells and vascular smooth muscle function in health and disease and for his mentoring of countless prominent endothelial and vascular biologists and pharmacologists.
The Paul M. Vanhoutte Award is a biennial award, consisting an honorarium of $1,000, a custom-designed crystal bowl depicting the named Lectureship, and up to $2,000 travel expenses including registration to the annual spring ASPET meeting. A recipient will be selected and invited to deliver a state-of-the-art lecture on recent advances in vascular biology and pharmacology at the spring ASPET meeting (Division’s programming session). The presentation of his/her research should be of broad interest and contribute to the growth of the Cardiovascular Pharmacology Division.
There are no restrictions on institutional affiliation, nationality, or age of the candidate, but the recipient must be an active member of the ASPET before receiving the award nomination. Nominations must be made by a member of the ASPET, and no member may nominate more than one candidate per year. Final selection of the recipient will be made by the Award Committee of the Division for Cardiovascular Pharmacology.
Nominations should consist of not more than five letters from nominators describing the contributions to vascular biology and pharmacology of the candidate that make him/her eligible for this Award and listing of his/her major contributions, together with a complete curriculum vitae. To ensure consideration, all information must be submitted electronically to: email@example.com no later than September 15, 2013.
