During the 2023 Joint Meeting of the joint meeting of the American Society for Matrix Biology (ASMB), The Histochemical Society (HCS), and the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) will honor individuals at various stages of their careers through several prestigious awards.
Trainees who are the first author of an abstract and are also members of the ASMB or ASIP may apply for Trainee Travel and Trainee Scholar Awards. Members as well as non-members are eligible to apply for an HCS Trainee Travel Award.
Likewise, ASIP will also award Junior Faculty Scholar Awards – the faculty member needs to be the corresponding author of an abstract and be within the time limit since their first faculty appointment that applies to travel awards. To be considered for the APSA Scholar Award, individuals must be a member of APSA in good standing.

Five (5) Travel Awards will be given to outstanding abstracts selected for oral presentation in one of the thematic concurrent sessions at the ASMB biennial meeting.
One award will be given to a graduate student and one award given to postdoctoral fellows who have demonstrated outstanding contributions to the field of matrix biology and a continuing commitment to matrix biology research. The awards will include an honorarium. Candidates must be ASMB members enrolled in a Ph.D. program or with no more than 5 years of postdoctoral training at the time of nomination submission. Selection criteria will include matrix-related publications, total publications, having secured independent fellowships, and a demonstrated interest in matrix biology. Up to six nominees will be selected to present their research at a special session at the ASMB biennial meeting.
The Histochemical Society awards programs seek to recognize projects and applicants that explore novel in situ tissue imaging and analytic techniques, including, but not limited to immunohistochemistry/immunofluorescence and in situ hybridization, or those that strongly incorporate these techniques. Demonstrating some connection to such techniques will be a prerequisite in the evaluation of award applications. Candidates do not need to be members of the Society.
