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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
