About the prize

The Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists is awarded annually to four young scientists for outstanding life science research for which he/she was awarded a doctoral degree in the previous year. The topic of the entrant’s thesis research must be in one of the following categories: Cell and Developmental Biology; Genomics and Proteomics; Environment; Translational Medicine. Find out more about the categories on science.org. The winners from each category will compete for the grand prize.

Each year, a grand prize winner is chosen from the winners in each category, and will receive a prize of US$25,000; and each of the three category winners will receive US$3,000. The grand prize winning essay will be published in Science and essays from the three category winners will be published online. Science/AAAS and SciLifeLab look forward to reviewing the research findings from future entrants.
