Van Meter Award
The Van Meter Award Lecture, established in 1930, recognizes outstanding contributions to research on the thyroid gland or related subjects. The award is given each year to an investigator who is not older than the age of 45 in the year of the award. The Van Meter award winner is kept secret until the time of the award lecture during the annual meeting. An honorarium and expenses are funded by support from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., Publishers. A Van Meter endowment contribution in memory of Jacob (Jack) Robbins has been given by Jean Robbins.
