The Protein Society Awards recognize excellence across the diverse disciplines that collectively advance our understanding of proteins; their structure, function, design, and application. The Awards honor researchers who have distinguished themselves with significant achievements in protein research and those who have made outstanding contributions in leadership, teaching, and service. Nominations are submitted by Protein Society members, awarded by The Protein Society Executive Council, and recipients are honored at the Annual Protein Society Symposium. We will present the 2018 Awards at the 32nd Annual Symposium of The Protein Society in Boston, Massachusetts, July 9 - 12, 2018.

Nominations should be made for a specific award, but the awards committee reserves the right to consider a nomination under a different category.
