Originally published: 6 October 2015

DEADLINE EXTENDED! Submit your nominations for 2016 award recipients by 4 December 2015 11:59PM CST.

The Society sponsors five major awards, which recognize outstanding contributions to the science of reproductive biology. The Awards Committee encourages SSR members to exercise the privilege of membership by nominating individuals for these awards. The five major awards presented annually are:

  • The Carl G. Hartman Award, named for a distinguished reproductive biologist, is SSR's highest award.  It recognizes a career of research and scholarly activities in the reproductive biology field. The nominee does not have to be a member of the Society.
  • The SSR Research Award recognizes an active, regular member of the Society for outstanding research published during the previous six years.
  • The SSR Distinguished Service Award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated unselfish service and leadership in advancing the discipline of reproductive biology.
  • The SSR New Investigator 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 SSR Trainee Mentoring Award recognizes an active, regular member of the Society who as a mentor has had a significant impact on trainees within the SSR. The Trainee Mentoring Award is intended for individuals who exceed the basic roles of an academic advisor, becoming a mentor to those with whom they interact.

To nominate an individual, please fill out the application form.  You will be asked to provide evidence that the nominee fulfills the criteria of the award for which they are being nominated, as well as upload supporting letters and the nominee's CV. Guidelines for nominating candidates for awards, the award criteria, and the list of past recipients are also available here.
