The Viktor Mutt Lectureship

The International Regulatory Peptide Society wishes to announce the opening of the call for nominations for The Viktor Mutt Lectureship, to be presented at RegPep2020, which will be held in Acapulco Diamante, Mexico, from September 17-22, 2020.

The Viktor Mutt Lectureship was established in recognition of the fundamental research of Viktor Mutt in the field of regulatory peptides, including gastrointestinal peptide hormones and neuropeptides. The Mutt Lectureship has been awarded thirteen times since its inception in 1994, and is intended to recognize the achievements of a scientist who, in their early or mid-career, has contributed decisively to progress in regulatory peptide research.

The IRPS Council congratulate last year’s Viktor Mutt Lecturer, Dr. Laura Bohn from the Scripps Institute, in recognition of her pioneering work on biased signaling at opiate receptors, and invite nominations for the 2020 Mutt Lectureship with a deadline of March 1, 2020. The Viktor Mutt Lecturer will receive full support for their travel expenses to attend RegPep2020 for the presentation of their lecture.

Nominations for the lectureship should include a short paragraph about the contribution of the nominee to progress in regulatory peptide research, and pertinent biographical facts about the nominee, and should be sent no later than March 1 to secretariat@irps-regpep.org.

The Mutt Lectureship Award for RegPep2020 will be announced in March, 2020.
