“Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award: Applications now open

21.05.2015

Applications for the fourth international Young Science Journalists Award of the World Health Summit now open “Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award 2015

In cooperation with Deutsches Ärzteblatt, the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA), and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the World Health Summit presents again the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award.

The five winners will be invited to the World Health Summit in October, receive prize money and a certificate, presented by the WHS Presidents Prof. Dr. Detlev Ganten (Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin) and Prof. Dr. Shunichi Fukuhara (Kyoto University).

The Summit offers a unique international networking and learning opportunity as the young journalists meet Nobel Prize laureates, Ministers, CEOs, and internationally leading researchers of Global Health.

Terms of Application:

• Submission of one print, digital, audio, or video feature with a focus on “Health”, which must have been published after January 1, 2014.
• Submissions will be accepted from all countries; however the content should be in English. Translations will be accepted if the original article is attached.
• Applicants should be at the beginning of their journalistic career with a maximum of 5 years’ experience.
• Please apply via science-journalist-award@worldhealthsummit.org
• Deadline for applications will be September 01, 2015

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
