Catherine Pasquier Memorial Award 2013
SFRR EUROPE CATHERINE PASQUIER MEMORIAL AWARD 2013
It is with great pride and respect that SFRR Europe announces an annual award honouring the life of Catherine Pasquier of INSERM, Paris, and President of SFRR Europe from 2001-2002. Catherine was an international leader in the field of free radical biology and a deserving representative of our Society. The award was initially endowed annually for 10 years and we are continuing with the tradition to invite an early career investigator to give the Catherine Pasquier Lecture at our annual meeting of SFRR Europe and to receive the award of a plaque. The 2013 Award Lecture will be presented at the forthcoming SFRR
Europe meeting in Athens, Greece, 23-25 September 2013.
This notice is to encourage nominations for the Catherine Pasquier Award. Nominees must be SFRR Europe members, and must be eligible according to the criteria specified below. The procedure for nominating a candidate is also outlined below. Please note that the deadline for receipt of completed nominations forms is 1 May 2013, and these should be emailed to the President Elect, Giovanni Mann (Email: email@example.com).
The eligibility criteria have been selected to reflect what we know were Professor Catherine Pasquier’s priorities during her prolific career. The eligible person must be a young scientist
- Beyond formal training but not yet fully established
- From any country in Europe and a member of SFRR Europe
- With career accomplishments and therefore also with future promise
- With achievements in the broad area of free radical research. This may include work at the basic, clinical or epidemiological level
This award is, thus, not intended for well-established investigators or as recognition for a single project, but for overall accomplishments and future promise.
The required material will be the candidate's full CV with an up-to-date publications list and a nominator's letter of recommendation. This letter will be very important and should clearly lay out the importance of the candidate's accomplishments to date and be convincing in its prediction of future research promise. All materials for the 2013 Catherine Pasquier Award should be sent as a single PDF by email to Giovanni Mann by 1 May 2013, noting that incomplete or late applications cannot be considered.
An SFRR Europe Catherine Pasquier Scientific Committee, chaired by the President-Elect, will select the Award Lecture from the received nominations with the awardee fulfilling the eligibility criteria, in particular their research excellence and promise without regard to nationality. The awardee will be informed by the 10 May 2013.
