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 are active members of SICB and who have completed their doctorate within the past seven years and have not won either the Carl Gans or M. Patricia Morse Awards (including in the same year). Candidates may apply directly or be nominated, but both types of candidates will be evaluated equivalently. Applicants shall submit to the Chair of the Award Committee a short description of their work, up to 3 selected reprints, a curriculum vitae, and a 1-2 page equity, diversity, and inclusivity (EDI) statement; and also request three letters of recommendation. Nominators must arrange for these same materials (except that only two additional letters of recommendation are required) to be submitted to the Committee. 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.

Please submit applications/nominations for this award here. The annual deadline for nominations is August 24.

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