    Special Opportunities for Young Investigators

    Up to 20 ASBMR Young Investigator Awards will be provided to the top-ranked young investigator abstract submitters in recognition of their excellence in bone and mineral research. Although nominations are not accepted for the ASBMR Young Investigator Awards, you should indicate eligibility within the General Information section of the online submission program. Only first and presenting authors will be considered for the ASBMR Young Investigator Awards.

    Eligibility Requirements:
    ASBMR Young Investigator Awards recognize young investigators who submit top-ranking abstracts to the ASBMR Meeting on New Frontiers in Skeletal Research: Bone, Fat and Brain Connections. Award recipients will receive a $1,000 honorarium and a plaque. The ASBMR expects that $500 of the honorarium will be used to help offset travel expenses to the ASBMR Meeting on New Frontiers in Skeletal Research: Bone, Fat and Brain Connections. The other $500 may be used by the recipient at his/her discretion. Eligible applicants must:

    • Be the first and presenting author of the abstract
    • Be a student/trainee or within five years of completion of a Ph.D., M.D., residency training or equivalent*
    • NOT be a past recipient of an ASBMR Young Investigator Award

    *The five years of eligibility are defined to extend from the end of the calendar year of the date of graduation or, if applicable, of completion of residency training or clinical subspecialty fellowship training, to the submission deadline date.

    Clinical subspecialty fellowship training is considered to end no later than the point at which the individual becomes board eligible. To petition for an extension of eligibility, please contact the ASBMR prior to the abstract submission deadline, January 22, 2009.

    If an individual selected to receive a Young Investigator Award does not present his or her abstract at the meeting, or is found to have not fulfilled eligibility criteria, the award will be cancelled and/or forfeited.
