FASEB Excellence in Science Award

FASEB Excellence in Science Award

The Excellence in Science Award was established by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) in 1989 to recognize outstanding achievement by women in biological science. All women who are members of one or more of the societies of FASEB are eligible for nomination. Nominations recognize a woman whose career achievements have contributed significantly to further our understanding of a particular discipline by excellence in research.

The award includes a $10,000 unrestricted research grant, funded by Eli Lilly and Company.
