Goodman and Gilman Award in Receptor Pharmacology Endowment Fund
Deadline for submission of nominations is September 15, 2013.
The Louis S. Goodman and Alfred Gilman Award in Drug Receptor Pharmacology, contributed by GlaxoSmithKline, was established to recognize and stimulate outstanding research in pharmacology of biological receptors. Such research might provide a better understanding of the mechanisms of biological processes and potentially provide the basis for the discovery of drugs useful in the treatment of diseases.
The award is presented biennially in even years and consists of an honorarium of $2,500, a plaque, hotel and economy airfare for the winner and spouse to the award ceremony at the ASPET annual meeting.
There are no restrictions on the nominees for this award; however, nominations must be made by a member of ASPET. No member may nominate more than one candidate a year, and no candidate may be nominated for more than one major ASPET award in any given year. The award is to be made on the basis of the research contributions described in published work or submitted manuscripts and a summary of those contributions described in the letter of the individual who nominates the candidate. Selection will be made by the ASPET Awards Committee, appointed by the President of ASPET.
Nominations shall be submitted electronically to email@example.com and shall consist of:
- Summary that details the importance of the candidate’s work.
- Six articles published or ready for publication that have direct
bearing on the award. (provided as PDFs or as hyperlinks to the
article). Submit each manuscript PDF as a separate attachment.
- Brief biographical sketch of the candidate.
- Candidate’s curriculum vitae and bibliography.
Receipt date for nominations for the Goodman and Gilman Award in Receptor Pharmacology will be 5:00 pm on September 15 of the year prior to the year in which the award is to be given.
