Award Description

The Robert M. Berne Distinguished Lectureship is in honor of one of the most distinguished members of the Cardiovascular Section, Robert M. Berne, whose research focused on the local chemical regulation of tissue blood flow, with an emphasis on understanding the role of adenosine and how it elicits vasodilation. This award is presented to an emerging leader in cardiovascular research whose current research is particularly stimulating, such that the presentation of this work would contribute to interest in, and growth of, the Cardiovascular Section. The applicant need not be a current member or fellow of the CV Section but should be in a peak career stage of research innovation and productivity.

The Berne Lectureship awardee will present a lecture describing their research at the Experimental Biology meeting.



Applicants are required to submit the following:

  • Provide biosketch in the current NIH format including descriptions of the applicant's contributions to cardiovascular research with significant contributions.
  • 2 Letters of nomination: one from a past or current trainee and the other of the applicant’s choice.

Please note: that materials in excess (eg., inclusion of extra letters beyond 2 required letters or inclusion or curriculum vitae) will be excluded from evaluation. 

Applications are only accepted via online submission.
