Honours and Awards

Young scientist award session

Deadline for SEB Florence 2018: 23 March 2018

The Young Scientist Award Session (YSAS) is held each year at the Annual Meeting.


The session provides the opportunity for postgraduates and post docs, who are within 5 years since completing their PhD, to showcase their talents and is designed to recognise the best young researchers. There are three prizes per section (i.e. Animal-Cell and Plant-Cell). Prizes on offer are as follows:

  • 1st Prize: £400
  • Runners up: 2 x £100

How to enter:

  • Submit an abstract online for a relevant session at the Annual Meeting. During submission, please tick the box which says "I would like to be considered for YSAS".
  • Submit an extended version of that abstract for judging by a panel together with two letters of references (one of which should confirm your status). For more information on preparing the extended abstract see the frequently asked questions

What happens next?

  • The extended abstracts will be judged and the three best candidates per section will be invited to give a presentation to a panel of judges at the Annual Meeting.
  • The presentations, based on the extended abstract, will be given at the Annual Meeting and a winner and two runners up from each section will be chosen on the basis of those presentations.
  • The winners of the award will be announced during the Medal and Prize session on 6 July 2018.
