Award Description

Candidates should be postdoctoral trainees who have made meritorious contributions to the area represented by the Respiration Section. Candidates will be judged on their publications, how the publications relate to the Respiration Section, evidence for future independence and promise (grant funding, peer review activities, etc.) and level of participation at the EB and other APS-related activities.
