Headline: Preise: HFSP – Nakasone Award
Freitag, 24. März 2017…”The HFSP Nakasone Award is designed to honour scientists who have undertaken frontier-moving research in biology, encompassing conceptual, experimental or technological breakthroughs. Both senior and junior scientists are eligible and peer-recognised excellence is the major criterion for selection. However, the jury will pay particular attention to recent breakthroughs by younger scientists. […]
The award is for scientific excellence of a clearly defined discovery or series of discoveries in basic life sciences research, in accord with HFSPO’s mission to support basic research into the “complex mechanisms of living organisms”. Areas have traditionally ranged from molecular and cellular approaches to biological functions to systems neuroscience including cognitive functions. However, all levels of complexity involving mechanisms of biological phenomena or the interactions between organisms will be considered.
The discovery or discoveries shall:be frontier contributions to knowledge in the life scienceshave resulted in a notable conceptual breakthrough that has had significant consequences for scientists throughout the world be identifiable via (a) specific publication(s).[…]
This is an open award, not restricted to HFSPO funded scientists and there are no restrictions on who may be nominated. However, HFSPO has a focus on early career scientists through its Fellowships and Research Grants funding programs and so nominations of scientists who have achieved a recent significant breakthrough at an early stage of their careers are especially encouraged. Both the nomination and the nominees may be from any country.
Up to three scientists may be jointly nominated for and share the Nakasone Award. These scientists should be co-authors on breakthrough publications or collaborators of key discoveries. Separate nominees for the same breakthrough will not be considered. Self-nominations are not accepted.”
