The Tabakoff ISBRA Award 2020

We are pleased to announce the Call for Nominations for the 2020 ISBRA Tabakoff Award to be presented at the joint ISBRA/RSA Conference June 20-24, 2020, in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA! ISBRA will support this award for excellence in research, which includes all aspects of biomedical research on alcoholism (basic and preclinical, translational and clinical work, genetics, and epidemiology), with a monetary award and a nice memento. The awardee will also be invited to present a plenary lecture at the joint ISBRA/RSA Conference in June 2020.

All members in good standing of ISBRA are invited to nominate individuals for this award. The nomination should consist of a letter (not to exceed 2 pages) outlining the rationale for the nomination. This letter can be signed by the nominator alone or by several supporters of the nomination (must be ISBRA members), but, in addition, 3 additional letters of support from other ISBRA members should accompany the nomination.


Nomination Process

Nominations can be submitted via the button below. The process is easy and straightforward, though we ask that you follow these guidelines:

  1. The nominator should gather all four required letters, and should submit them at the same time. This will allow us to easily identify each submission, and will speed the review process. Again, the required documents are:
    • One letter (not to exceed 2 pages) outlining the rationale for the nomination. This letter can be signed by the nominator alone or by several supporters of the nomination (must be ISBRA members).
    • Three letters of support from other ISBRA members should accompany the nomination.
  2. All four letters may be combined into a single PDF, or they can be submitted as individual files.
  3. To start your submission, first complete the Google reCAPTCHA below (i.e. click the 'I am not a robot' checkbox).
  4. After successfully completing the reCAPTCHA, the 'Submit Nomination' button will become active. Click this button to proceed to the next step.
  5. Select which files to upload, and provide your name and email address. This information will allow us to track your submission, and follow-up if necessary.

If you have any questions, please email isbra@isbra.com

The deadline for all nominations for the 2020 award is Saturday, February 1, 2020.
