BioOne Presents 2024 BioOne Ambassador Award to Five Early Career Scientists

WASHINGTON D.C. – BioOne is proud to announce the 2024 recipients of the BioOne Ambassador Award. Now in its seventh year, this prestigious award recognizes early-career researchers in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences who demonstrate creative approaches to science communication thereby fostering greater science literacy and aiding in the understanding of the natural world. BioOne Ambassadors are nominated by BioOne publishing partners, and each winning author will receive a $1,000 award and have their work promoted through BioOne’s multiple channels.

This year’s honorees are:

Dr. Elis Fisk – Draw and Learn: A Bighorn Sheep Mystery; nominated by The Wildlife Disease Association for his research published in the Journal of Wildlife Diseases.

Dr. Carina Nebel – Advancing Our Understanding of an Important Flagship Species, the Golden Eagle, by Combining Scientific Methods and Cultural Traditions; nominated by the Raptor Research Foundation for her research published in The Journal of Raptor Research.

Dr. Thalles Pereira – Partnerships for the Goals: Citizens and Scientists Find and Describe a New Species; nominated by the Stuttgart State Museum of Natural History for his research published in Integrative Systematics.

Michael T. Stewart – An Urban Success Story? Tracking Gray Hawks in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas; nominated by the Raptor Research Foundation for his research published in The Journal of Raptor Research.

Dr. Sarah Wright – A Window Into the Marine Mammal Immune System: A One Health Connection; nominated by The Wildlife Disease Association for her research published in the Journal of Wildlife Diseases.

“The technology available today allows us to explore and communicate the natural world from several different perspectives and in many different ways, also providing the grounds for collaboration between academic researchers and citizen scientists,” said Daniel Whitmore, editor of Integrative Systematics. “As a journal with a long history in traditional morphological systematics, we embrace opportunities for a more holistic approach to natural history research and offer a twenty-first-century venue for its publication. We hope that the attention from BioOne Ambassador Award will encourage other early-career scientists to publish their results in Integrative Systematics.”

“The 2024 BioOne Ambassadors reflect the future of science communication, presenting complex research in an accessible, engaging, and inspiring manner,” said Lauren Kane, President/CEO of BioOne. “Their efforts enrich our collective understanding and promote meaningful dialogue, driving the impact of their research forward. We celebrate their dedication and invaluable contributions to the scientific community.”
