Herbert Tabor Young Investigator Award Program

Recognizing the next generation of great scientists

JBC/Tabor Young Investigator Award logo

The Herbert Tabor Young Investigator Awards honor Tabor’s invaluable contributions to science as a whole and to JBC specifically, where he served as editor-in-chief from 1971-2012. The awards recognize the innovators and achievers in new generations of researchers who exemplify Tabor’s values of creativity and scientific excellence.

Awards are given to the first authors of exceptional JBC papers that appeared in the preceding year. Students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty members who have not yet received tenure are eligible. The winners are invited to give talks as part of a special spotlight session at the ASBMB Annual Meeting, all expenses paid. Read more about the decision process and each of the 2019 winners in this JBC editorial and this ASBMB Today feature, and in profiles linked to each name below.
