Rosalind Kornfeld Award for Lifetime Achievement in Glycobiology

The Rosalind Kornfeld Award for Lifetime Achievement in Glycobiology was established in 2008 to honor the distinguished scientific career and service to the Society by Dr Rosalind Kornfield. The award will be given by the Society for Glycobiology to scientists who have, over their professional lifetimes, made significant contributions with important impact on the field. Consideration of candidates may occur annually, but the award will be given only in years during which a deserving candidate is nominated and identified. All glycobiologists are eligible, but recipients of the Karl Meyer Award will not be considered until 10 years after having received that award.
