Tony B. Academic Award Program

Students, graduate students, post-doctoral associates and junior faculty (less than four years in first academic appointment) are encouraged to apply for this prestigious award for the SLAS2021 Digital International Conference and Exhibition.

An applicant must be the primary author of a submitted abstract and must present his/her research in either a poster or oral (podium) session at the digital conference. Submitted award applications are reviewed by members of the Tony B. Academic Award selection panel and are based on multiple factors, including but not limited to:

  • Quality of the abstract
  • The relevance of the research to the SLAS2021 Digital conference
  • Statement of the value of the conference
  • Qualifications of the applicant

The award covers the following:

  • Complimentary Premier SLAS Membership for one year
  • Full conference registration 
  • One workshop registration
  • Eligibility to be published in a special Tony B. feature issue of SLAS Technology or SLAS Discovery
  • Invitation to be featured on the SLAS podcast, New Matter: Inside the Minds of SLAS Scientists
  • Mentorship opportunity through SLAS Mentor Program

Multiple applicants from a single research group are allowed to apply. However, such applicants should understand that award application reviewers may prioritize the applications so that only one individual per investigator's research group receives an award. This decision will be based on funding availability and the criteria listed above.
