Final Call For Nominations: Biosciences Federation Science Communication Award 2008

07.08.2008
Nominations are requested for the Biosciences Federation Science Communication Award 2008, sponsored by Pfizer, which recognises research-active bioscientists from UK universities or institutes who make an outstanding and consistent contribution to communicating science to the public.

There are two categories of Award:

Category A: New Researcher – for bioscience researchers currently reading for a Masters or PhD, or in the first year of a post-doctoral position. Prize: £500

Category B: Established Researcher - for bioscience researchers who are beyond the first stages of their research career, as defined in category A above. Prize: £1500

The nominations will be evaluated by an Award Panel comprising:
Dr Mark Lythgoe, University College London and Director, Cheltenham Science Festival
Dr Rebecca Sowden , winner of the 2007 BSF Science Communication Award
Jim Loftus, Discovery Recruitment Manager, Pfizer Global Research and Development
Prof Ian McGrath, University of Glasgow and Biosciences Federation Council
Dr Julia Buckingham, Imperial College, London and Biosciences Federation Council
To make a nomination:
Nomination of researchers working in any sector of the biosciences, from UK universities or institutes, must be supported by a named representative from a Biosciences Federation Member or Associate Member Organisation (list of members) by submission of a completed Nomination Form.

Prizes will be awarded at a Biosciences Federation Science Communication Meeting and Evening Reception in central London, in November 2008.

The deadline for receipt of nominations is 24th August 2008.

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
