On the occasion of the 8ISFE meeting in Gothenburg, the international committee decided to introduce a Yoshitaka Nagahama lectureship, first in recognition of Professor Nagahama’s enormous contribution to the field and also to promote promising scientists at an early stage of their career.
The Yoshitaka Nagahama lectureship will be awarded to a young investigator (defined as 10 years or less in an independent faculty position or equivalent) in recognition of significant and novel scientific contributions to the area of fish endocrinology.
Nominations guidelines for the Yoshitaka Nagahama lectureship:
Nominations should be submitted formally via electronic mail to the President of the ISFE and the President of the LOC 6 months prior to the meeting. A minimum of 3 well-argued letters of support from prominent scientists of different countries should be obtained. The Scientific and International Committees will select the speaker among those researchers who have been formally nominated by the deadline. The nomination package should include complete CV of the nominee and abbreviated CVs of the nominators.
