APBS has established two types of awards this year that will be presented annually in honor of Dr. Edward (Ted) Carr: 1) Outstanding Poster Presentation (that emphasizes both Science and Quality of Life issues) and 2) Promising Researcher (targeting scholarly endeavors of junior faculty at institutions of higher education).

At the 2010 St. Louis Conference two posters received awards:

Richard Young, Brigham Young University, Provo, UT Is there an easy, effective way to motivate late students to arrive on time?
