Nominations Open for 2024 SRBR Leader Award
The SRBR Leader Award is a fundraising initiative that recognizes and honors chronobiologists and sleep scientists who helped make SRBR what it is today. They are individuals who provided leadership in the field of biological rhythms and sleep, made significant contributions to our society and official journal, or engaged in research training and mentoring for many members of our community. Members of the Society donate funds in the name of these Leaders as a show of appreciation for their contributions. All funds raised through the Leader Award can be only used for trainee development activities.
The Awards Committee will accept nominations from the membership during the non-meeting years. Self-nominations will not be accepted. The Committee will choose a minimum of two and up to three Leaders and announce the nomination and fundraiser via the SRBR newsletter and other media. Leaders will be recognized at the SRBR Banquet along with the other awards. The funds raised can be disclosed to the membership but the individual amounts raised for each Leader cannot.
Posthumous nominations will not be accepted until 12 months after the nominee has passed away. The nominator(s) will be responsible for communicating with the family of the deceased for consent, and will communicate to the Awards Committee which direct family members have consented to the nomination.
