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

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
