THE SCIENCE AND SCILIFELAB PRIZE FOR YOUNG SCIENTISTS

The four winners will present their award-winning essays at the symposium in the following categories:  

  • Cell and Molecular Biology: Includes cellular and molecular processes at levels ranging from single molecule to single cell to tissue and organ systems.  
  • Genomics and Proteomics: Focuses on analyses of gene- and protein-related events, at the scale of gene or protein networks to the complete set of genes or proteins in an organism.
  • Ecology and Environment: Encompasses interactions between organisms and their environment, and how these processes are influenced by human activity.
  • Translational Medicine: Builds on in vitro or animal model studies of biological processes to develop potential therapies or medical procedures.
