ENOCH GORDIS RESEARCH RECOGNITION AWARDS
The Enoch Gordis Research Recognition Awards are awarded to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who present a first author poster during the RSA Annual Scientific Conference in one of the following research areas:
- Biological / Preclinical
- Psychosocial / Clinical
There is an award application process that requires submitting an abstract for poster presentation, even if abstract has also been submitted for oral presentation (speaker abstract), by the general RSA poster abstract submission deadline. Additionally, applicants will need to write and submit an expanded abstract by the Enoch Gordis application deadline that provides further details about their study and a letter (students only) from their mentor confirming their eligibility. Detailed instructions are available below.
Finalists will be required to present their research during a poster session and paper session. Finalists are chosen and their presentations are judged by members of the Education Committee. The awardees are announced during the Closing Ceremony at RSA. Online application site opens in mid-October and remains open until early-January.
There are 4 – 5 awards (monetary and plaque) presented. The final decision on the number of awards will be determined by the number of applications received in each category and the quality of the work represented. All students and eligible postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to apply and finalists will be required to present their research during a poster and paper session. Only one application per person and per abstract may be submitted.
STUDENTS: Graduate Students only.
POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS: Must not be more than 5 years past PhD or MD at the time of the conference.
Note: Receiving a Student Merit / Junior Investigator Award does not preclude you from receiving an Enoch Gordis Research Recognition Award. You may apply for both awards.
The Gordis Application site opens when the RSA abstract submission site is opened. The Gordis submission deadline coincides with Poster Abstract deadline.

For a Gordis application, a poster abstract submission is required even if abstract was also submitted for oral presentation (speaker abstract). When relevant, certain information that is standard for abstracts should be included: sample sizes, statistical methods and levels of significance, and quantitative comparisons (for example, if you measured a change in something, how much did it change?).
An expanded version of your abstract - maximum 900 word count, including an Introduction that outlines the significance of the research, a Methods section, a Results section and a Discussion section. Figures, charts and tables should not be included. When relevant, the information that is standard for abstracts should be included: sample sizes, statistical methods and levels of significance, and quantitative comparisons (for example, if you measured a change in something, how much did it change?).
Abstract References - maximum 300 word count.
