Established in 2017 by the SDB Board of Directors in honor of Dr. Elizabeth D. Hay, this award recognizes new investigators who have performed outstanding research in developmental biology during the early stages of their independent career. Nominees are evaluated on their independence from mentors, as well as the originality, significance, and impact of their research on the broader field of developmental biology. The recipient will deliver an award lecture at the SDB annual meeting.
Deadline is December 15 11:59 PM ET each year. In years in which the deadline falls on a weekend, nominations will be accepted until 11:59 PM ET of the following Monday.
