Congratulations to the 2015 Society of Developmental Biology award winners

Society for Developmental Biology Lifetime Achievement Award

The Society confers yearly the SDB Lifetime Achievement Award to a senior developmental biologist in recognition of her/his outstanding and sustained contributions in the field. The award is given for the individual's excellence in research and for being a superb mentor who has helped train the next generation of exceptional scientists. Typically, the award is given during the third trimester of the recipient's career, to allow sufficient time to assess the impact of his/her contributions. The recipient is invited to attend the SDB Annual Meeting and receive the prizes at the Awards Ceremony.

Lifetime Achievement Award recipient for 2015: Brigid Hogan (Duke University)


Edward G. Conklin Medal

In 1995 the SDB inaugurated the Edwin Grant Conklin Medal to honor a society member who has performed distinguished and sustained research in developmental biology. The recipient delivers a feature lecture at the annual society meeting and is presented with a commemorative plaque by the incoming SDB President.

Conklin Medal Recipient for 2015: Michael Levine (University of California, Berkeley)
