Bayer-Snoeyenbos New Investigator Award
2015 Award Information

Deadline for submissions: February 15, 2015


The Bayer-Snoeyenbos New Investigator Award is given to a member or associate member of AAAP whose career as an independent investigator in poultry medicine began less than seven years ago and who during this time has made meritorious research contributions to the avian field. The spirit of the award is to recognize new and upcoming investigators.  The award shall be in the amount of $1,000.00.

The New Investigator Award was renamed in 1994 in memory of Dr. Glenn Snoeyenbos, because of his excellent contributions to the AAAP and avian medicine.  Dr. Snoeyenbos died in 1993.  The award was re-named a second time in 1996 in recognition of the $32,000 donation that the Bayer Poultry Business Unit made in support of the award.

Qualification Criteria:

Nominations for the Bayer-Snoeyenbos New Investigator Award will be accepted from any member of the AAAP.  The nominee must be a AAAP member or associate member whose career as an independent investigator in poultry medicine began less than seven years ago and who during this time has made meritorious research contributions to the avian field.  This award will be given for special accomplishment in a particular area of investigation or for overall accomplishments during the specified time. This seven year period typically begins after the individual completes a PhD. degree and may include time spent as a postdoctoral researcher if those studies are in the field of poultry medicine. This award shall not be made more than once to any one recipient.
