Young scientists who have done something remarkable in stem cell research recently have until March 1 to tell the world about it and win a $25,000 award.
Early career scientists — younger than 45 as of Jan. 1 2016 — working in the field of stem cells and/or regenerative medicine are eligible for the annual Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine Award. Entrants must submit an essay describing the implications of work they have done in the past three years in developing cell-based treatments for cancer, degenerative disorders and immunological conditions.
Sponsored by China-based Boyalife, the largest stem cell bank in Asia, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, publisher of Science, Science Translational Medicine, Science Signaling and Science Advances, the award recognizes significant contributions in advancing basic science to clinical applications in the field.
The winning essay will be published in Science. The runner-up will receive $5,000. Find out more here.
