At the annual meeting, AMP honors individuals at various stages of their careers through several prestigious awards. Each year's award winners are announced online and in the November (Annual Meeting) issue of The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics.
AMP's highest award, the AMP Award for Excellence in Molecular Diagnostics recognizes lifetime pioneering and special achievements by professionals in the fields of molecular biology, molecular pathology, pathology, genetics, microbiology and basic medical sciences, especially as these achievements relate to molecular diagnostics and molecular medicine.
The AMP Leadership Award is AMP's highest award given to an AMP member. It is presented to an AMP member who has demonstrated exceptional leadership in the accomplishment of the mission and goals of AMP.
The AMP Meritorious Service Award recognizes an AMP member for particularly estimable service to the organization. The Recipient has demonstrated exceptional dedication and effort, over time and often behind-the-scenes, to provide exceptional service to AMP and its membership. In addition, the Recipient generally also provides especially notable service to the molecular pathology profession. The award is not necessarily given annually, but only when it is determined that service exists that warrants this special recognition. More than one recipient may be acknowledged if warranted.
The Minority Trainee Travel Award is sponsored by the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) through the Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Program of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), funded by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, National Institutes of Health [FASEB MARC Program: T36-GM08059-30]. It is designed to promote the entry of under-represented minority scientists into the mainstream of the basic sciences community and encourages the participation of young pathologists who are planning a (bench science) research career in the AMP 2013 Annual Meeting. Applicants must submit an abstract to the AMP annual meeting and must be trainee members of ASIP. AMP members may apply for ASIP trainee membership using a special form before the deadline of June 30. For more information go to http://www.asip.org/awards/minority_amp.cfm
Successful applicants will be reimbursed up to $1,850 in travel costs associated with conference attendance and participation. These funds are meant to defray lodging, air travel, ground transportation, and meeting registration.Online applications and more information are on the ASIP Website.
AMP honors the three best posters submitted by AMP member non-doctoral technologists or medical technologists with the Technologist Award.
The AMP Technologist Travel Award provides travel assistance to the annual meeting to selected AMP member technologists who do not receive travel support from their institutions.
AMP honors the three best posters submitted by AMP member trainees with the Young Investigator Award.
The ICPI Trainee Travel Award supports trainee participation in scientific meetings organized by its sponsoring and associate member societies. A limited number of ICPI Trainee Travel Awards of $500 each are available. The award is intended to offset the travel costs for attending a meeting of one of ICPI's member societies. Awardees must currently be a trainee (medical student, graduate student, resident, fellow) member of AMP.
