Carole L. Marcus Outstanding Achievement Award

This award is intended to recognize the career accomplishments in the area of pediatric sleep and respiratory neurobiology.  This encompasses the areas of control of breathing, sleep mechanisms, and sleep-disordered breathing from a developmental standpoint, among infants, children, or adolescents.  This may include research at the basic, translational, clinical, or population level, teaching, clinical care and/or development of new clinical programs to advance the care of children with sleep and breathing disorders. The award is intended to recognize a new investigator who is beyond formal training, but not yet fully established. It is not intended for well-established investigators. It is also not intended as recognition for a single project, but rather for overall accomplishments and future potential. There are no citizenship requirements for this award.

 

The award will be presented at the ATS International Conference. The awardee is expected to be present at the conference in order to receive the award along with an honorarium of US $500.  Eligible applicants should be a member of the ATS and hold a faculty appointment but cannot be at a rank higher than Assistant Professor (or equivalent).
