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: Explosion on Jupiter-sized star 10 times more powerful than ever seen on our sun

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter

  • Coolest and smallest star to produce a superflare found
  • Star is a tenth of the radius of our Sun
  • Researchers led by University of Warwick could only see...

Im Focus: Quantum simulation more stable than expected

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.

Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...

Im Focus: Largest, fastest array of microscopic 'traffic cops' for optical communications

The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...

Im Focus: A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds

Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.

Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...

Im Focus: Researchers 3D print metamaterials with novel optical properties

Engineers create novel optical devices, including a moth eye-inspired omnidirectional microwave antenna

A team of engineers at Tufts University has developed a series of 3D printed metamaterials with unique microwave or optical properties that go beyond what is...
