Deadline Approaching for the 2022 SSR Major Awards Nominations

The Society for the Study of Reproduction has announced that the deadline to submit 2022 SSR Major Awards Nominations is August 15, 2021. This nomination process is an important acknowledgment of individuals contributing outstanding work to the scientific study of reproductive biology. Send nomination materials to Dr. Melissa Pepling, Chair, SSR Awards Committee, e-mail: awards@ssr.org.

There are seven awards of recognition:


Carl G. Hartman Award

Named for a distinguished reproductive biologist, this is the Society's highest award. The highest award of the SSR is given in recognition of a career of research and scholarly activities in the field of reproductive biology. See procedures for guidelines regarding the length of the nomination and supporting letters.


Jansen Distinguished Leadership and Service Award

This award recognizes an active, regular member of the Society who has demonstrated unselfish service and leadership in advancing the discipline of reproductive biology. View the procedures for guidelines.


Virendra Mahesh New Investigator Award

This award recognizes an active, regular member of SSR for outstanding research completed and published within 12 years after receiving a Ph.D. or other equivalent professional degree (please note that for 2022 an additional year of eligibility is given due to COVID-19, i.e. 13 years). Nominees will be evaluated on the originality, significance, and impact of their research in reproductive sciences or allied fields, and the degree to which their research was independent of that of a mentor. View procedures for guidelines.


SSR Research Award

This award recognizes an active, regular member of the Society for outstanding research published over the previous six years. View the procedure for guidelines.

SRR Trainee Mentoring Award

This award recognizes an SSR member who as a mentor has had a significant impact on Trainees within the SSR. The Trainee Mentoring Award will be presented each year at the SSR Annual Meeting to an SSR member who has consistently demonstrated a measure of support and guidance to Trainees that far exceeds the basic responsibilities required of an academic advisor.
