Award Description

In 2014, a member of NCAR anonymously sponsored a trainee award for a period of 10 years. The award requires that NCAR trainees be given the opportunity to make an oral presentation at the American Physiology Summit to showcase their research. In 2017 another NCAR member matched the donation to allow for a second award to be given to a postdoctoral trainee.

The NCARnation session provides 12 selected trainees with an opportunity to give a brief oral presentation (5 min) during the American Physiology Summit.

The best presentations by a graduate student and a postdoctoral fellow are presented with the NCARnation award ($250).


Eligibility

 

  • Must submit an abstract to the American Physiology Summit under an NCAR topic.


Criteria

Abstracts are selected among all the abstracts submitted by NCAR trainees to an NCAR topic by a committee composed of the NCAR trainee representative and former NCARnation participants. During the oral presentation, the judges (members of the NCAR steering committee) rank the speakers based on the following:

  • significance,
  • innovation,
  • clarity of the presentation,
  • familiarity with the field,
  • ability to answer questions.

The best presentations by a graduate student and a postdoctoral fellow are presented with the NCARnation award.
