    Awards

    Kirsti Lager­spetz Awards

    Kirsti M. J. Lager­spetz Awards will be made to young inves­ti­ga­tors deliv­er­ing either poster or podium pre­sen­ta­tions. To be eli­gi­ble for a Lager­spetz Award, a pre­sen­ter must be either a stu­dent in a ter­mi­nal degree pro­gram or a per­son who is within 2 years of hav­ing com­pleted a ter­mi­nal degree (e.g. Ph.D., M.D., J.D.). Recip­i­ents of the award must be the first author of the paper or poster pre­sen­ta­tion. Pre­sen­ters should indi­cate their eli­gi­bil­ity for the award at the time of sub­mis­sion. Recip­i­ents of the award will receive a cer­tifi­cate doc­u­ment­ing the award and a cash honorarium.

    The John Paul Scott Award for a life­time or sub­stan­tial con­tri­bu­tion to aggres­sion research will be awarded at the World Meet­ing. The Scott Award Recip­i­ent will receive a Scott Award Cer­tifi­cate and a $1000 travel award hon­o­rar­ium to attend the ISRA Bien­nial World Meet­ing, where he or she will deliver the Scott Award Address.

    The Young Inves­ti­ga­tors (YI) Program

    ISRA began its YI pro­gram in 2008 to encour­age and assist young schol­ars who are get­ting started or are in the early stages of their aggres­sion research career. Pre­vi­ous YIs have found the pro­gram very enjoy­able and help­ful. The 2014 YI pro­gram includes:

    1. A Pre-​meeting YI Work­shop. The 2014 Work­shop will focus on sup­port­ive group dis­cus­sion to help YIs plan, write and/​or revise grant appli­ca­tions in accord with reviewer crit­i­cisms. YIs are encour­aged to sub­mit their own pro­pos­als to be strength­ened. Pro­posal pre­sen­ta­tion can be anony­mous if desired. Dis­cus­sion can range from spe­cific edit­ing sug­ges­tions to gen­eral research ques­tions. Ques­tions about sci­en­tific pub­li­ca­tion may also be addressed.
    2. Meet with men­tors. YIs will meet with a dif­fer­ent panel of men­tors dur­ing lunch or din­ner each day for infor­mal dis­cus­sion. Men­tors will include ple­nary speak­ers who will be avail­able for follow-​up ques­tions about their presentations
    3. Net­work­ing. YIs will meet with mem­bers of ISRA. They will also get acquainted with other young inves­ti­ga­tors of their gen­er­a­tion. Mutual sup­port and fruit­ful col­lab­o­ra­tions have devel­oped out of past YI interactions.
    4. Finan­cial sup­port. Meet­ing reg­is­tra­tion cost will be cov­ered. Lim­ited stipends for travel and other meet­ing expenses will be avail­able to appli­cants accepted into the pro­gram on an “as needed” basis.

    YI Pro­gram Application

    We encour­age grad­u­ate stu­dents, Post­doc­toral Fel­lows and junior fac­ulty within 3 years of their Grad­u­ate degree to apply.

    Please submit:

    1. An abstract of the sci­en­tific work you would like to present at the ISRA 2014 meet­ing (250 words max­i­mum). Indi­cate on the abstract if you pre­fer an oral paper or poster pre­sen­ta­tion format.
    2. A stan­dard Cur­ricu­lum Vitae
    3. A 250-​word state­ment sum­ma­riz­ing your research inter­ests and how par­tic­i­pat­ing in the YI Pro­gram would advance your pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment. Stu­dents should include a let­ter from their advi­sor or have her/​him send a let­ter ver­i­fy­ing your stu­dent sta­tus. We will choose YI par­tic­i­pants based on the orig­i­nal­ity and promise of their work in human or ani­mal, obser­va­tional, exper­i­men­tal or the­o­ret­i­cal analy­ses of aggres­sion.

    NOTE: Sub­mit­ting an appli­ca­tion means that you pro­pose to present a poster or a talk at the 2014 ISRA meet­ing AND that you wish to be con­sid­ered for the YI Pro­gram. Poster sub­mis­sions are pre­ferred, but not required. ISRA deci­sions about these two requests are sep­a­rate. You will be informed first about whether the abstract is accepted for pre­sen­ta­tion (most are) and then about par­tic­i­pat­ing in the YI Pro­gram. Dead­line for YI appli­ca­tions is April 1, 2014.

    Direct any ques­tions about the Young Inves­ti­ga­tors Pro­gram, and sub­mit your YI appli­ca­tion mate­ri­als, to M. Pote­gal. Direct ques­tions about the ISRA meet­ing to Dominic Par­rott or Volkan Topalli. To find out more about ISRA ini­tia­tives to encour­age Young Inves­ti­ga­tors, please fol­low this link.
