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: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
