Nominations for CryoFellow

Searching for Outstanding Individuals CryoMedal

The Society for Cryobiology established the award and medal of CryoFellow over a decade ago in recognition of members of the society and individuals from the cryobiology community who have had an outstanding impact on the field.

Newly appointed fellows are presented with the prestigious Basile. J. Luyet medal at the annual meeting the Society for Cryobiology in recognition of their services to cryobiology. Recent Fellows have included Greg Fahy and John Bischof (2016) and Kenneth Diller (2015). 

The Fellow Committee is now inviting annual nominations of outstanding individuals to be considered as Fellows of the Society for Cryobiology.

CryoFellows are awarded this prestigious status in recognition of:

  • Scientific impact of their research on cryobiology (50%)
  • Sustained nature of that impact (20%)
  • Generation of scientific offspring (20%)
  • Service to the Society (10%).

There is no formal application form on which to make the nomination, but the documents you provide the committee should be of sufficient depth to support the candidate’s contributions to the categories mentioned above in a clear and demonstrable way. Usually this will mean inclusion with the nomination: 
(1) supporting letters from members of the Society or other major contributors to cryobiology (including one from the nominator); and 
(2) a detailed resume for the nominee. I suggest you contact the proposed CryoFellow to discuss their nomination before proceeding and to obtain the resume from the nominee.  

Please note the individual must be living at the time that he or she is nominated.

Applications are considered by the Fellow Committee, which consists of three current members of the Board of Governors and two CryoFellows.  This Committee evaluates the nominations and makes recommendations to the Board of Governors for approval of new Fellows.  

If there is someone you would like to nominate please email the completed nomination materials to Nicole Evans by Sunday July 16, 2017.
