SSR New Investigator Award
This award recognizes an active, regular member of the Society for outstanding research completed and published within 12 years after receiving the Ph.D. or other equivalent professional degree. The Awards Committee will consider the originality of the research, the significance and impact of the research in reproductive sciences or allied fields, and the degree to which the nominee's research was independent of that of a mentor. The nomination should be accompanied by letters of recommendation from two senior colleagues and/or scientific collaborators. The recipient of the Award will have the honor of presenting his/her research during the 2012 Annual Meeting of the Society and at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Society for Reproduction and Fertility.
