In order to promote young scientists early in their career, SciLifeLab has engaged in a collaboration with AAAS and Science magazine 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 for a week in Stockholm to attend the prize ceremony and to interact with the SciLifeLab community. All winners also have their essays published by Science.
