AAAR 40th Annual Conference

Developing a New AAAR Award!

The last two years have emphasized the important role that our mentors and scientific community play in our careers. To highlight this, AAAR is developing a new award that will recognize excellence in mentoring, training, teaching, and supporting students and/or early career scientists. The Awards Committee is asking for your feedback and suggestions for the namesake(s) of this award. Please use the anonymous google form linked below to submit your recommendations, and to add any reflections on what mentoring, training, and teaching has meant to you in your career. The Awards Committee will use your responses to select a short list of namesakes and to develop the selection criteria for the award.

Feedback should be provided by September 25th for discussion by the Awards Committee. Further details are provided in the google form. If you have any questions or issues submitting the form please contact Dr. Rachel O’Brien (
