The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab): Inviting Applications for Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists.

Donor Name: The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab)
Award name:  Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists

Award brief:  Science/AAAS and SciLifeLab, a coordinated effort of four universities, have joined forces in creating the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists. Both Science/AAAS and SciLifeLab recognize that global economic health is dependent upon a vibrant research community and we need to incent our best and brightest to continue in their chosen fields of research. Considering the difficult economic environment, we feel it is important to provide extra encouragement to young scientists as they begin their scientific careers.

Thesis research categories: Cell and Molecular Biology, Genomics and Proteomics, Ecology and Environment, Translational Medicine.

Deadline: July, 15th, 2017
