Applications must be submitted by January 10th, 2023.  Applications from students and postdoctoral fellows will be rigorously evaluated. The top four candidates will be invited to give an oral presentation in a session dedicated to this award program. In addition to an abstract, participation in this program requires submission of a separate description of the innovation of the research (150 words or less) and the individual’s contribution to the work being presented (150 words or less). Selection of the top four candidates is based on the evaluation of the applications by the MCBIOS board members for quality and impact of the research. The finalists are selected by a panel of judges (including keynote speakers) after the oral presentations. The quality of the professional presentation is the primary consideration for selection of the award recipients. Applicants with demonstrated multidisciplinary contribution and initiative are given preference during final selection. Announcement of the awards will be made during the final luncheon.
