Honoring Our Scientists


An important part of the FABBS mission is recognizing the contributions of leaders in the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior. Our programs honor both senior and early career scientists for their research.

In Honor Of

The “In Honor Of” program highlights eminent, senior scientists who have made a lasting impact, through decades of research, to our understanding of humans – how they think, feel, and act. A glimpse of the honorees on our Gallery of Scientists page provides a sense of the breadth and depth of this research.

The scientific contributions of each honoree are summarized on special IHO pages, along with a list of individuals wishing to express their appreciation to the honoree for this important body of research. Learn more…

Early Career Impact

Another FABBS program, the Early Career Impact Awards, recognizes scientists who are in the early stages of their professional careers and have already shown promise as a leading researcher.

In selecting possible honorees, FABBS draws upon the expertise of its member scientific societies to identify early career candidates who have made significant contributions to their areas of science.  The early career scientists’ academic contributions are highlighted on the FABBS web site. In addition, FABBS translates the early career scientists’ research for a broad public audience by preparing general interest articles for policy makers and the public. Learn more…
