2024 Call for Service Award Nominations

Nominate a Colleague

The PRIM&R Service Award honors individuals who have provided significant timely or timeless service to the human subjects protections and/or animal care and use communities that are at the core of PRIM&R. “Significant service” is broadly construed  to include work in areas including but not limited to teaching, mentorship, innovation, leadership, engagement, program improvement, and research. 

The intention of the award is to recognize the many and varied ways that people can have significant impact on the field at any point in their careers. It is meant to encompass long-time service and commitment across a career, one-time innovations or projects that make a big impact, and a range of contributions in between. 

Nominators should keep the following in mind: 

  • PRIM&R membership is not required to be eligible for the award. 
  • Provide as much detail as possible about why and how the person you are nominating has in your view had a significant impact on the field and deserves the award. 
  • PRIM&R is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, and encourages nominations that recognize contributions in this area and people from underrepresented communities. 
  • Current PRIM&R Board of Directors are not eligible for the PRIM&R Service Award while on the PRIM&R Board of Directors or for one year after they roll off the Board. 
  • Please refrain from submitting multiple nominations for the same individual as it does not increase their likelihood of being selected as the recipient. 

The recipient of the PRIM&R Service Award will be notified by mid-summer, and the announcement of the award recipient will be made in the fall.
