ISEH 2021 New Investigator Awards



Our society takes great pride in supporting the work of young scientists who submit cutting-edge abstracts for discussion at the ISEH Annual Meeting.

To this end, each year ISEH includes a New Investigator Session in which the Program Committee selects the six highest ranked abstracts to present an oral presentation along with a five minute Q&A. Presenters were reviewed by an anonymous panel of judges on the following criteria: presentation topic, presentation content, Q&A response, and overall presentation. The session awards prizes into two groups – student and postdoctoral fellow, with three prizes being awarded in each category. Congratulations to our 2021 New Investigator Award Winners!
