2024 Karpay Award: Call for applications

Posted by on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 in News.

The Karpay Award Committee is now soliciting applications for the 2024 Karpay Award in Structural Biology. This award was established in 2010 to commemorate Dr. Anne Karpay, whose studies were focused on membrane protein structural biology under the guidance of Professors Chuck Sanders and Tina Iverson. Dr. Karpay’s career ended prematurely following a 4-year battle with breast cancer, which claimed her in 2008.

The awardee will be chosen based on his/her scientific accomplishments in the area of structural biology. It is equally important that the awardee is a well-rounded colleague, who is collegial and collaborative, traits that defined Dr. Karpay. A $1,500 honorarium accompanies the award, which is contingent upon the winner giving the MBTP/CSB seminar in January, when the award will be presented.

Applications will be accepted until 3 PM, October 13, 2023. The winner will be notified by November 10, and the award itself will be presented on January 23, 2024. Download the application here. Send completed application materials to Karen Davis.

See the full list of winners here.

We wish all the applicants the best of luck in competing for this Award! It has become an important tradition for the Vanderbilt Structural Biology community!
