I have been notified that I received the Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology (SBN) WC Young Recent Graduate Award for my dissertation research! I am very humbled to have been selected by the society for this award. I will be honored at the Society for Neuroscience next week.
William C. Young was one of the founders of modern behavioral neuroendocrinology. The SBN honors WC Young through the "WC Young Recent Graduate Award" (initially created in the 1960's by one of the society's predecessors, the West Coast Sex Conference). Selection criteria for the WC Young Recent Graduate Award are based on the doctoral dissertation, scholarly productivity, and letters of reference.
