Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award

The Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award is presented to individuals to recognize novel and seminal research dealing with a specific thematic area (not a collection of disparate findings) that has made a significant impact to the sleep and circadian research field.  Generally, the major contribution is presented in a single publication, although in some cases the scientific contribution is best represented in a small series of discoveries.  Scientific advances recognized by this award may be basic, translational, clinical or theoretical in nature. This award honors one scientist or a team of up to three scientists most responsible for the design, conduct, and publication of the novel and seminal work.

Thank you for all Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award nominations. Nominations for 2019 are now closed.
