Enter to win the Sartorius and Science Prize for Regenerative Medicine and Cell Therapy
By Brad Stubenhaus
The Sartorius Group, a pharmaceutical equipment provider, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, publisher of the journal Science, have combined forces to offer a prize to young scientists who are no more than 10 years removed from having earned their Ph.D.s.
The application consists mainly of a 1,000-word essay describing the candidate’s research to date. First prize wins publication of the essay in the journal Science (!), $25,000 (!!) and, most importantly, a funny looking trophy for the bookshelf in your office (!!!).
The application opened on April 1 and will close on Oct. 1.
Eligible fields include regenerative medicine, cell therapy, gene therapy, immunotherapy, materials and tissue engineering.
