SRBR Leader Program



To recognize the contributions of pioneers in the field of biological rhythms and sleep who have worked tirelessly in support of our field and to train the next generation of investigators, SRBR is launching the SRBR Pioneer Programthe goal of which is a 50% increase in the Society’s investment portfolio by the date of the 2026 SRBR Conference (40th Anniversary of SRBR).

 The SRBR Pioneer Program will recognize and honor a special group of 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.

Recognition of an individual as a SRBR Pioneer requires that colleagues, family members, and friends collectively contribute a minimum of $5,000 in support of this individual’s nomination. 

100% of donation income received from this program will be used to support innovative and inclusive professional and trainee-centered programs of SRBR.

Nominations for the program will open August 1 each year and close on October 1 each year.
