2023 SCBA-SinoBiological Young Investigator Awards Announcement


SCBA-SinoBiological Young Investigator Awards are co-sponsored by the Seattle Chinese Biomedical Association (SCBA) and Sino Biological (Biotechnology company).

SCBA (http://scbahome.org/) is a volunteer run non-profit 501(C)(3) organization founded in 1993 in Seattle. SCBA strives to provide a forum for the exchange of information related to life sciences and the Chinese community in the great Seattle area.

Sino Biological (https://www.sinobiological.com/) is an internationally recognized reagent supplier and service provider specialized in recombinant protein production and antibody development. The company’s ever-growing portfolio of products includes recombinant proteins, monoclonal antibodies, ELISA assay kits, expression clones, cell culture media, and other molecular biology tools.

SCBA-SinoBiological Young Investigator Awards are established to recognize early-career SCBA members in Washington State who have made significant contributions to their respective biomedical research fields. The Awards also value individuals who are committed to making contributions to the SCBA seminars and/or annual meetings.

This year we only accept self-nominations, which means all applicants need to complete an online application process before the indicated deadline. Review processes will take place every year prior to the SCBA annual meeting. Awardees will be invited to present their research in one of SCBA regular seminars or annual meeting either online or in person.

Review Process

Award types, Announcement, and Presentation

Depending on the applicant pool, there will be 1-2 awards in each of the four categories (student, postdoc, industrial scientist and junior faculty). The number of awards in each category will be ultimately determined by the number and credential of respective applicants. Each award will consist of a plaque and an honorarium of $500.
