ARTHUR W. ROWE BEST PAPER AWARD

The purpose of the Arthur W.  Rowe Best Paper Award is to recognize and publicize outstanding research published in Cryobiology. The corresponding author of the winning paper will be invited to present their research in a special awards session and receive a plaque in recognition of the award.

The authors of the winning paper will be notified in advance of the meeting, but the general announcement of the winning paper will be made at CRYO2022.

No application is necessary. All papers published in Cryobiology during the 2021 calendar year are automatically considered for the award. The editorial board of Cryobiology will review all published papers and select the winner. 

In 2018, the Society for Cryobiology established the Arthur W. Rowe Best Paper Award, to recognize the most outstanding paper published annually in Cryobiology. The award is named for founding member of the Society, Arthur W. Rowe, who has provided immeasurable service to the Society for Cryobiology, including 22 years as Cryobiology Editor-in-Chief from 1972-1994.
