European Respiratory Society (ERS) members can now apply or nominate colleagues for a range of prestigious ERS Scientific Awards that recognise research excellence across the respiratory field.
The awards on offer for 2023 include ERS Mid-Career Gold Medals, Lifetime Achievement Awards and the Sadoul Lecture Award.
The ERS Mid-Career Gold Medal Awards honour mid-career researchers from the ERS membership who have an excellent track record and the potential for further outstanding developments in a specific field.
The award fields include ARDS, asthma, basic and translational sciences, chronic cough, cystic fibrosis, NTM, sleep disordered breathing, and thoracic surgery and transplantation.
Mid-Career Gold Medal Awards may be sponsored and can offer attractive research grants for submitted project proposals.
The ERS Lifetime Achievement Awards honour highly regarded senior scientists and established experts in the respiratory field, who have an international reputation.
The recipients of these awards are exclusively ERS members and each year we ask for members from specific assemblies to apply/nominate – ensuring that members from all groups have an opportunity to apply/nominate in rotation year by year.
There are four Lifetime Achievement Awards on offer in 2023 and this year the call for applications/nominations is for: paediatrics (ERS Assembly 7); allied respiratory professionals (ERS Assembly 9); pulmonary vascular diseases (ERS Assembly 13); and clinical techniques, imaging and endoscopy (ERS Assembly 14).
Finally, the Sadoul Lecture Award aims to honour established chest physicians who have a world-wide reputation in the respiratory field. This Award commemorates a French scientist, Paul Sadoul, founder of the SEPCR and long-time editor of the “Bulletin Européen de Physiopathologie Respiratoire,” predecessor of the European Respiratory Journal. A special Congress session will be dedicated to the Sadoul Lecture and a slot will be reserved for the awardee.
The deadline to apply or nominate for these awards is 10 December at 23:59.
