NIH’s Sexual and Gender Minority Research Office (SGMRO) seeks nominations for the 2022 Sexual and Gender Minority (SGM) Research Investigator Awards Program. Nominees should be early-stage investigators who have made substantial, outstanding research contributions in areas related to SGM health and are poised to become future leaders in the field.  

SGMRO will select two nominees to receive non-monetary awards of recognition and an invitation to give a lecture at the 2022 NIH SGM Research Investigator Awards Program event on September 15, 2022.

Nominations are due on April 30, 2022.  

For instructions on how to nominate a colleague or yourself, read the March 8, 2022 Guide notice. Nomination packages must include a letter of nomination and two letters of endorsement, so you’ll need to act quickly to submit the nomination in time.
