It is our pleasure to announce that the International Complement Society will present an ICS Early Career Award for Research in Complement at the Complement Workshop 2023 in order to recognize outstanding work by a younger colleague in the field.
The Early Career Award, established in 2014, acknowledges excellence in complement-focused research by a scientist who is in the early stages of an independent career, and provides support to stimulate further research of the highest scientific level.
In order to meet the criteria for the Early Career Award, nominees should be younger than 40 years old at the nomination date and have held a Faculty position for no more than 10 years, though special consideration will be given to those who have taken career breaks. Appropriate research by the candidate may be based on laboratory investigations, clinical or epidemiological studies, experimental animal studies, or a combination thereof, in the field of complement. Nominees must be employed in a University, non-profit research institution or hospital. Nominations may be suggested and submitted by any member of the ICS; self-applications are not accepted.
