Awarding young scientists at the start of their careers
In order to promote young scientists early in their career, SciLifeLab has engaged in a collaboration with AAAS and Science magazine, co-funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, to award an annual prize in the area of life science for the best PhD thesis work.
An essay based on the thesis is submitted to the editorial board of Science and four winners are selected and invited to the Nobel week in Stockholm for a prize ceremony and to interact with the SciLifeLab community. All winners also have their essays published by Science.
