Dear Colleague:


Each year, the International Zebrafish Society (IZFS) presents two prestigious awards at its annual International Zebrafish Conference – the George Streisinger Award and the Chi-Bin Chien Award.

IZFS is currently seeking nominations from the zebrafish community for consideration by our Awards Committee.  We are extending the deadline to February 4 for the Chi-Bin Chien Award.

The Chi-Bin Chien Award will be given to an outstanding graduate student, postdoctoral trainee, or recently appointed faculty member from any country who has made significant contributions to the field of zebrafish research and has exhibited the generosity and openness that characterized and motivated Dr. Chien.   Submit applications to in a single PDF file that includes:

  1.  A one-page statement from the nominee describing his/her research and its importance to the advancement of zebrafish research.
  2. The nominee's C.V.
  3. Letter of recommendation from the mentor.
  4. Letter of recommendation from one additional scholar who is familiar with the research being described in the application.

For information about nominating a colleague or to make a donation to this award, please go to

We hope to see you in Suzhou in June at the 14th IZFC ( as these awards are presented to our honored colleagues.


Thank you,
Mary Mullins
IZFS President
