Call for entries: EMBO Award for Communication in the Life Sciences

23.02.2005


The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) invites entries for its fourth Award for Communication in the Life Sciences.



The EMBO Award for Communication in the Life Sciences is presented annually to a practising life scientist in Europe who has made significant contributions to public understanding of science. Launched in 2002, the award highlights the exceptional efforts made by many scientists to combine science communication activities with a full-time research career. Winners of the EMBO Communications Award are also nominated by EMBO for the European Commission’s Descartes Prize for Science Communication.

The prize consists of a personal award of Euro 5000 and a silver and gold medal. Interested scientists should apply by May 31, 2005 using the official entry form at: www.embo.org/projects/scisoc/com_medal.html#call.


Last year’s winner was Frances Balkwill, Director of the Cancer Research UK’s Translational Oncology Laboratory at the Bart’s & The London, who won the award “for her spectacular work in communicating important scientific concepts to the young”. For more details, go to www.embo.org/press/comm_award_2004.html.

The EMBO Award for Communication in the Life Sciences will be presented on 28 October 2005 during the EMBO/EMBL joint conference on Science & Society in Heidelberg: www.embo.org/projects/scisoc/scisoc2005.html

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

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: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
