|Chi-Bin Chien Award|
The Chi-Bin Chien Award was established by the zebrafish research community and the International Zebrafish Society (IZFS) in memory of Dr. Chi-Bin Chien (1965–2011). Chi-Bin was Professor of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Utah and served the international zebrafish community in numerous ways, including his service as Director of the Zebrafish Neural Development and Genetics Course at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory and as an organizer of the International Conference on Zebrafish Genetics and Development. The Award celebrates Chi-Bin’s enthusiasm and love for the discussion of scientific ideas and the good things that grow out of interactions and open discourse among scientists, his efforts to mentor and support the development of young scientists, and the collaborative and generous spirit with which he contributed to advance research with the zebrafish. The award will be given to an outstanding graduate student, postdoctoral trainee, or recently appointed faculty member from any country who has made significant contributions to the field of zebrafish research and has exhibited the generosity and openness that characterized and motivated Chi-Bin. The 2017 awardee will be recognized at the 10th European Zebrafish Meeting in Budapest, Hungary, July 3-7, 2017.
Nominations for the Chi-Bin Chien Award are to be submitted by the candidate’s PhD or post-doctoral mentor by email with the subject line “Chi-Bin Chien Award” by February 6, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submit the application in a single PDF file that includes:
