George A. Bartholomew Award

Each year the Division of Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry recognizes a young investigator for distinguished contributions to comparative physiology and biochemistry or to related fields of functional and integrative biology. The award offers the awardee a fantastic opportunity to communicate this research via a large lecture at this year’s SICB conference. We encourage nominations of individuals from under-represented groups in science, including women. Eligible candidates are those who have completed their doctorate within the past seven years and who are members of SICB. Candidates for this award may apply themselves or they may be nominated; all candidates will be evaluated equally. The person chosen as the recipient of this award will be invited to present a special address at the upcoming SICB annual meeting.  In addition to a cash prize, the recipient will be reimbursed for the expenses incurred to attend the meeting.

Applicants should submit a short description of their work, selected reprints, and curriculum vitae. Three letters of recommendation should be solicited from colleagues who know of the nominee’s work. Nominators must also secure two additional letters of recommendation in addition to submitting the nominating letter.

Please submit applications/nominations for this award here. The deadline for nominations is August 27, 2021.

Any questions about this award or the nomination/application process can be directed to the Chair of the Award Committee (
