Lectureships and Awards

The Gorbman-Bern Memorial Lectureship will be awarded in recognition of significant and continuous contributions to the area of comparative endocrinology and the associated scientific community.

The Gorbman-Bern New Independent Investigator Award will be awarded to a young investigator (defined as 5 years or less in an independent faculty position or equivalent) in recognition of significant and novel scientific contributions to the area of comparative endocrinology.

Trainee awards for best oral and poster presentations will be awarded at the NASCE conferences.

An Awards Committee appointed by the President will evaluate the submitted nominations, and oversee the administration of the awards. The committee will consist of two representatives each from Canada, Mexico, and the USA. These six members may recruit additional postdoctoral/faculty judges during the NASCE conference for evaluation of the trainee awards. In the event that a member of the Awards Committee is the supervisor of a trainee, the potential conflict of interest shall be declared. The member will not participate in the evaluation of his or her own trainee’s submissions.
