Annual SSR-CFAS Exchange Lecturer Nomination

At this present time, CFAS intends to host its Annual Meeting as planned during Sept. 10-12th, 2020, at the Westin Harbour Castle in downtown Toronto. However, we recognize that the research and clinic/lab operations of many of our members and prospective abstract submitters have been temporarily put on hold or otherwise slowed down as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline to May 30th, 2020. We hope this will provide submitters more time to conduct research or analyze data while still providing abstract reviewers with sufficient time to score abstracts. Please note that this extension also applies to grant applications and award nominations (including the SSR Exchange Lecturer Award).

You are invited to nominate one of your colleagues for the 2021 SSR-CFAS Exchange Lecture! The award winner will attend the 5th Society for the Study of Reproduction (SSR) Meeting and give the SSR-CFAS Exchange Lecture!

Consider someone who:

  • Conducts research that would be of significance to the members of SSR
  • Has experience communicating scientific results (conferences, teaching, publications in the scientific literature)
  • Is a trailblazer in their field of research and demonstrates superior knowledge and expertise in the reproductive science and/or medicine

CFAS will provide travel support from the speaker's home to and from the destination airport and incurred food expenses, while SSR will cover ground transportation from the destination airport to the conference hotel, up to four nights hotel accommodation, waive the speaker's conference registration fee, and cover the cost of a conference dinner ticket.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • CFAS members in good standing can nominate a colleague

  • Nominee must be a mid-career stage basic scientist or clinician-scientist holding a faculty appointment at a Canadian University or accredited Research Institution

  • Nominee must be a CFAS member

Nomination/Selection Process:

Fill out the nomination form and submit it, along with the nominee's CV and cover letter, by May 30th, 2020.

Please upload all documents as PDFs.

A review committee composed of members of the CFAS Research in Reproductive Science Special Interest Group will review nominations and make a recommendation to the CFAS Board for approval at the May Board Meeting. The CFAS President will announce the 2021 SSR-CFAS Exchange Lecturer award winner at the CFAS Annual Conference in Toronto.

Congratulations to Dr. Sarah Kimmins, the CFAS member who is the 2020 SSR-CFAS Exchange Lecturer!

CLOSING DATE: May 30th, 2020
