Nominations for EBSA Prizes and notice of EBSA 2017 General Assembly and President’s meeting
Dear EBSA Presidents and Secretaries,
Can I remind you that EBSA invites all Member Societies to nominate candidates for the EBSA Young Investigators’ Medal and Prize, to be awarded at the IUPAB/EBSA Congress in Edinburgh in July 2017. The winner of the Prize receives 2000 EUR and a medal, and will present a lecture at the Congress, as well as be expected to contribute an article to the European Biophysics Journal (either a review or original article). Nominations (at most 2 pages long) by the National Societies (only one nomination from any Society) should be sent to the EBSA Secretary, Prof. John Seddon (firstname.lastname@example.org) before 31 December 2016. The procedure for the nomination is described on the EBSA webpage: http://ebsa.org/portal/prize-and-medal
EBSA also invites individual nominations for the Avanti Polar Lipids / EBSA Award, which will be presented at the IUPAB/EBSA Congress in 2017 to an investigator for outstanding contributions to our understanding of lipid biophysics. The winner receives a Prize of US$ 3,000, and will present a lecture at the Congress. Additionally, a review article for the European Biophysics Journal is desired, submitted within 3 months of the award being made known the recipient. The nominee must be a member of an EBSA adherent member Society that is in good standing. The nomination packet, in PDF format, should be emailed by the nominator to the current EBSA President, Prof. Helmut Grubmüller (email@example.com) before 31 December 2016. The procedure for the nomination is described on the EBSA webpage: http://ebsa.org/portal/prize-and-medal
I would be grateful if you would remind your Societies’ members of these two awards, and of the deadlines.
I would also like to inform you about the following two meetings which will take place during the IUPAB/EBSA Congress in Edinburgh:
EBSA National Societies’ Presidents meeting. This will be held from 13.00 – 14.30 on Monday 17th July 2017, in room Harris 1 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. A sandwich lunch will be provided. National Societies’ Secretaries are also welcome to attend.
EBSA General Assembly. This will be held from 19.00 – 20.00 on Tuesday 18th July 2017, in the Sidlaw Auditorium in the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. An Agenda will be circulated not later than 2 months before the Congress.
Best wishes, John Seddon (Secretary).
