2017 Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism Undergraduate Research Excellence Awards

July 17, 2017

We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism (APNM) Undergraduate Research Excellence Awards. This awards series is presented by Canadian Science Publishing (CSP) in partnership with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology and the Canadian Nutrition Society.

The awards series recognizes outstanding senior undergraduate students who are enrolled in exercise science and nutrition major programs at participating Canadian universities and colleges. The awards are presented on an annual basis. 

The submission and selection procedures are determined by the awarding institution (e.g., the student’s home department) but typically, nominations are put forward by the eligible student’s supervisor. The awards recognize excellence in research and are thus linked to some aspect of an independent or self-directed learning research project such as a final-year thesis. Once nominations have been made to the department, the final selection of each award recipient is made by the student’s home department. The department selects only one award recipient per eligible department per year. The deadline of selection of the award recipient is by April 30th of each year. 

APNM established the awards to recognize excellence in up-and-coming Canadian researchers by profiling the research of exceptional students and providing them with the opportunity to be more involved with the journal and with the field as a whole. 

The 12 winners for 2017 have each received a certificate of recognition and have been granted free electronic access to APNM for one year. Winners have been invited to blog about their research—keep an eye out for their posts.

Congratulations to the 2017 winners!
