Young Investigator Award for Outstanding Research

This annual award is made available to a Canadian or Canadian-based individual who received their last academic degree not more than 15 years before the nomination deadline for the year in which the award is to be offered, and who has made an outstanding contribution to research in nutrition.

In submitting your nomination, the following information should be provided: curriculum vitae of the nominee including academic record (degrees, majors, institutions and dates), current official title and address, brief summary of professional record, bibliography of papers published or "accepted for publication" during the past 15 years, reprints of the nominee's most important publications, titles or abstracts of papers presented at scientific conferences. A letter in support of the nominee pointing out the nature and significance of the work for which the nomination is submitted is an important component of the package. CNS Membership is not required of the nominee but will be viewed as an asset.

The award consists of complimentary registration at the CNS-SCN Annual Conference and Awards Banquet, presentation of a plenary lecture at the CNS-SCN Annual Conference by the recipient, a certificate, plaque or other recognition, and monetary award towards travel and accommodation.

Nominations may be made by anyone and are open to all, but preference will be given to members and supporters of CNS. An anonymous committee, appointed by the Canadian Nutrition Society, will recommend the selected recipient of the Young Investigator Award. The award will be presented to the recipient at the CNS-SCN Annual Conference.

Nominations are due February 1, 2019 - submitted via the Online Award Nomination tool
