The Melvin H. Knisely Award

It was established in 1983 to honor Dr. Knisely’s accomplishments in the field of the transport of oxygen and other metabolites and anabolites in the human body. Over the years, he has inspired many young investigators and this award is to honor his enthusiasm for assisting and encouraging young scientists and engineers in various disciplines. The award is to acknowledge outstanding young investigators. This award was first presented during the banquet of the 1983 annual conference of ISOTT in Ruston, Louisiana. The award includes a Melvin H. Knisely plaque and a cash prize.

TERMS OF THE AWARD

  • A candidate must have a PhD, MD or equivalent.
  • A candidate must not pass his/her 36th birthday before the date of presentation of the award.
  • The candidate must provide evidence of sustained activity in research related to oxygen transport to tissue.
  • The candidate must be a member of ISOTT, or be eligible for the membership.
  • The candidate must submit one (or more) abstract(s) as a lead author, make a presentation of his/her work during the annual ISOTT conference in the year when he/she is nominated, and submit a full manuscript.
  • A candidate who is unsuccessful any given year can be re-nominated in a subsequent year if he/she meets the award criteria in the year of nomination.

NOMINATION

The candidate must be nominated (self nomination is not allowed) and the nominator must be an ISOTT member. A full nomination package includes: a nomination letter; a copy of a curriculum vitae demonstrating the candidate’s accomplishments; at least two (2) additional letters of support; and a copy of a first-author manuscript for the ISOTT proceeding in the year of nomination. Additional supporting materials may be included. Nominations with an incomplete package will not be considered.

WHERE TO SUBMIT?

Please send complete nomination packages to Dr. Duane F. Bruley via e-mail (Bruley@UMBC.edu) or Synthesizer, Inc., 2773 Westminster Road, Ellicot City, MD 21043, USA.

Deadline: July 1.

The Dietrich W. Lübbers Award

It was established in honor of Professor Lübbers's long-standing commitment, interest, and contributions to the problems of oxygen transport to tissue and to the society. This award was first presented in 1994 during the annual conference of ISOTT in Istanbul, Turkey.

TERMS OF THE AWARD

  • A candidate must not pass his/her 35th birthday before the date of presentation of the award.
  • The candidate must provide evidence of sustained research activities in the (and/or related) field of oxygen transport to tissue.

  • The candidate must submit one (or more) abstract(s) as a lead author, make a presentation of his/her research results during the annual ISOTT conference, and submit a manuscript to the ISOTT proceeding in the year when he/she is nominated.
  • A recipient who has previously received a Knisely Award may not be nominated for this award.
  • The candidate for this award may be simultaneously eligible for the Britton Chance Award in the year of the nomination, but a candidate may receive only one award.
  • A candidate who is unsuccessful in any given year can be re-nominated in a subsequent year if he/she meets the award criteria in the year of nomination.

The Duane F. Bruley Travel Awards

They were established in 2003 and first presented by ISOTT at the 2004 annual conference in Bari, Italy. This award was created to provide travel funds for student researchers in all aspects of areas of oxygen transport to tissue. The awards signify Dr. Bruley's interest in encouraging and supporting young researchers to maintain the image and quality of research associated with the society. As a co-founder of ISOTT in 1973, Dr. Bruley emphasizes cross-disciplinary research among basic scientists, engineers, medical scientists, and clinicians. His pioneering work constructing mathematical models for oxygen and other anabolite/metabolite transport in the microcirculation, employing computer solutions, were the first to consider system non-linearities, time dependence, including multi-dimensional diffusion, convection, and reaction kinetics. It is hoped that receiving the Duane F. Bruley Travel Award will inspire students to excel in their research and will assist in securing future leadership for ISOTT.


A candidate can be nominated and receive this award multiple times, as long as if he/she meets the award criteria in the year of nomination. The award includes a certificate and a cash prize that can assist with paying for ISOTT meeting registration fees and/or travel expenses.

TERMS OF THE AWARD

  • A candidate must not pass his/her 35th birthday before the date of presentation of the award.
  • The candidate must provide evidence of sustained research activities in the (or related) field of oxygen transport to tissue.
  • The candidate must be a member of ISOTT or eligible for the membership.
