Richard E. Weitzman Outstanding Early Career Investigator Award
About the Award
Presented to an exceptionally promising young clinical or basic investigator who has not reached the age of 50 by December 31 of the year in which the award is presented. The award is based upon the contributions and achievements of the nominee’s own independent scholarship performed after completion of formal training and on the recipient’s entire body of work, rather than a single work.
Established in 1982 through a generous gift by an anonymous donor, this award honors the memory of the late Richard E. Weitzman, who had a brief but outstanding career studying neurohypophyseal hormone and cardiovascular-endocrine physiology.
Nominee must not reach the age of 50 by December 31 of the year in which the award is presented
