President's Innovator Award

The Society for Glycobiology President’s Innovator Award acknowledges the contributions of one scientist each year that has made a significant impact on society.

Karl Meyer Lectureship Award

In 1990 the Society established the Karl Meyer Lectureship Award to honor the distinguished career of Karl Meyer and his outstanding contributions to the field of Glycobiology. This international award is now presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society to a well-established scientist with a currently active research program who has made widely recognized major contributions to the field of Glycobiology.


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 of Dr. Rosalind Kornfeld, as well as her outstanding service to the Society. The Society for Glycobiology will give this award to scientists who have made significant contributions with an important impact on the field over their professional lifetimes. 


Glycobiology Significant Achievement Award

The Glycobiology Significant Achievement Award was established in 2016 by Oxford University Press (publisher of Glycobiology) and the Society for Glycobiology. This Award recognizes new and mid-career scientists that have had a key discovery during their early career that had, or has the potential to have, a substantial impact on the field of glycobiolgy. The award is presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society.

MCP/ASBMB Lectureship Award

The MCP/ASBMB Award was established in 2013 to honor scientists that have been at the forefront of the emerging field of glycomics and glycoproteomics. Molecular & Cellular Proteomics, an official publication of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, introduced its sponsored lectureship series as part of its 10th anniversary celebration in 2011. 

Student Travel Awards

The Society for Glycobiology's Student Travel Awards are given to help students and post-docs gain the experience and exposure that comes from attending and presenting at SFG conferences.
