ISCB Fellows Program Nominate a Fellow

Scroll to see the full list of current ISCB Fellows.

The International Society for Computational Biology introduced the ISCB Fellows Program in 2009 to honor members that have distinguished themselves through outstanding contributions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics. During the inaugural year of the program, ISCB conferred the Fellow status on the seven winners-to-date of the ISCB Accomplishment by a Senior Scientist Award, and recognized these distinguished scientists during the ISMB/ECCB 2009 conference in Stockholm, Sweden. Since then ISCB has sought nominations from our community of members, which are reviewed and voted upon by a selection committee. New Fellows are introduced at each year's ISMB conference.

The distinction of an ISCB Fellow is based on the following:

  • Nomination by an ISCB member must be made using the online nomination form, which requires a one-two sentence description of why this person is being proposed, a detailed half-page statement of motivation (500 words maximum) on why this is a good nominee, and a CV (as either an uploaded document or a bullet-point list created by the nominator).
  • Nominees must demonstrate excellence in research, service to the computational biology community, education and/or administration.
  • Nominees will be assessed on the magnitude and quality of contributions to the field of computational biology.
  • Fellow status is automatically bestowed upon the annual Accomplishment by a Sr. Scientist Award winner.
  • Selection of new Fellows each year is limited to 1/2 of one percent of the previous year's membership, including the Sr. Scientist Award winner.

The ISCB Fellows Committee oversees the Fellows Program and recommends changes or improvements to the ISCB Board of Directors. Members of the Fellows Committee who are not already ISCB Fellows are not eligible to be elected as new Fellows while serving on the Fellows Committee. Selecting new Fellows is the job of the Fellows Selection Committee by voting on the nominations received each year. The Selection Committee is made up of all current Fellows. Upon selection, new Fellows may use the title immediately and will be recognized at the ISMB meeting following their selection.
