Nominations open for Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science – Germany (2008)

26.03.2008
Nature is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for its 2008 Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science. Nature invites nominations of outstanding scientific mentors in Germany.

This year two prizes of €10,000 will be awarded – one for mid-career and one for lifetime achievement. Nominations open today (25 March) and close on 4 July 2008. The Awards will be announced at a ceremony in Berlin in October 2008.

The annual Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science, launched in 2005 to recognise outstanding scientific mentorship, focus on a specific country or countries each year. The 2008 awards focus on Germany. In previous years the Nature Awards have highlighted mentors in Australia, South Africa and the UK.

Nominees may work in any discipline within the natural sciences, and should be resident in Germany. They may nominate themselves or be nominated by colleagues and ex-colleagues. Nominations for a candidate must include independent testimonials by at least five researchers mentored by their nominee, not all over the same period.

Full details and nomination forms are available on the 2008 Award page on the Nature website: www.nature.com/nature/mentoringawards/germany/. More information about the Nature Awards for Mentoring in Science is available at www.nature.com/nature/awards/mentorship/.

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...

Im Focus: Like a wedge in a hinge

Researchers lay groundwork to tailor drugs for new targets in cancer therapy

In the fight against cancer, scientists are developing new drugs to hit tumor cells at so far unused weak points. Such a “sore spot” is the protein complex...
