Call for Nominations for the Arthur T. Winfree Prize
The Society of Mathematical Biology is soliciting nominations for the 2013 Arthur T. Winfree Prize. The prize honors a theoretician whose research has inspired significant new biology. Nominations of individuals to be considered for the prize may focus on a single paper or series of papers that illustrate the close connection between theory and experiment, or may be based upon a larger body of theoretical work produced by the individual that has led to significant new biological understanding affecting observation/experiments. The prize winner will be invited to deliver a lecture at the 2013 Annual Meeting, to be held in Tempe, Arizona, June 10-13, 2013.
More details about the criteria for the Prize and about Art Winfree can be found on the SMB website, at http://www.smb.org/prizes/index.shtml.
The deadline for nominations is February 28, 2013.
Nominations of candidates should consist of a nomination letter of no more than 2 pages, including a description of the nominee's key contributions and the experiments they inspired, contact information for the nominee, and the nominee's research CV.
These materials should be sent to Fred Adler by email (email@example.com) or by regular mail (Fred Adler, Department of Mathematics, 155 South 1400 East, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 84112-0090, USA).
