ASIP Outstanding Investigator Award

First awarded in 1957 as the Warner-Lambert-Parke Davis Outstanding Investigator Award through 2000 (then as the Pfizer Outstanding Investigator Award from 2001-2003 and the Amgen Outstanding Investigator Award from 2004-2008), this prestigious annual award recognizes mid-career investigators with demonstrated excellence in research in experimental pathology. The Meritorious Awards Committee will consider the published record of peer-reviewed research and overall impact of the science, mentorship, and participation of the candidate and protégés in ASIP scientific meetings. There is no age eligibility requirement for this award; however, prior experience suggests that most successful awardees are in transition from Associate Professor to Professor (or equivalent) and are under 50-years of age at the time of nomination. Awardees will receive an stipend and a plaque at the ASIP Annual Meeting that will form the basis of a publication in The American Journal of Pathology. Nominations for the award require: 1) three letters of recommendation including two from members of the Society; 2) the candidate's curriculum vitae including bibliography; and 3) ASIP membership in good standing for at least five years prior to nomination.
