Henry Christian Awards

These awards were established in 1990 to honor the founder of AFMR, Dr. Henry Christian. Each year, the awards will be given to the presenter (or first author) of the most outstanding abstracts submitted to each of the four AFMR Regional Meetings: the Western Medical Research Conference in Carmel, the Southern Regional Meeting in New Orleans, the Eastern Regional Meeting in Philadelphia, and/or the MWAFMR/CSCTR Combined Midwestern Meeting in Chicago. Award winners will present their work during a special AFMR Symposium at Translational Science 2018, which will be held April 19-21, 2018 in Washington, DC. Recipients will receive a Certificate of Excellence and $500 honorarium at the meeting.

Candidates must be physicians who are post-MD trainees, including residents, clinical fellows, physicians pursuing PhDs or other graduate degrees, and other post-doctoral fellows. To qualify for the Henry Christian Award, applicants must be AFMR members in good standing. You may go online to join AFMR or renew your Membership.
