This award recognizes an outstanding research effort by an early-stage investigator in the field of sleep research. The basis for evaluation of a candidate is a single, peer-reviewed publication reporting original research (not a review), supported by a senior investigator’s letter of recommendation that must address specific elements described below. The candidate must be the first author; and the article must be published or accepted for publication in 2020.

The award consists of a plaque and an honorarium to be applied toward registration to attend Virtual SLEEP 2021, the Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies. The plaque will be virtually presented to you at Virtual SLEEP 2021 during the SRS Club Hypnos Reception and mailed later.
