For more than 70 years, The Endocrine Society has recognized the meritorious achievements of endocrinologists worldwide. Valued at more than $66,000, the Laureate Awards recognize endocrinologists for seminal research, meritorious service, leadership and mentorship, innovation, international contributions, public service, translation of science to practice, and lifetime achievement.
Award categories honor the achievements of endocrinologists at all stages of their careers, recognizing those at the pinnacle of the field as well as young endocrinologists who are making a mark. The dedication, commitment, and achievements of current and past award recipients have earned each a place in endocrine history.
The Society is making exciting changes to ensure the awards complement the Society’s mission to advance excellence in endocrinology and promote its essential and integrative role in scientific discovery, medical practice, and human health. These include:
Introduction of new awards
New titles that better describe the purpose of each award
Streamlined nomination process
Easy-to-use resources for nominators
Another evolution involves the lecture aspect of the Laureate Awards. Beginning with the 2015 award cycle, all Laureate Award recipients will be eligible for consideration to participate in scientific programs and other activities at ENDO. Opportunities include, but are not limited to, Plenaries, symposia, Meet-the-Professor sessions, and workshops.
