Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators Opens for 2023
The award recognises outstanding contributions to biomedical research in Europe based on methods of molecular biology, including novel analytical concepts.
Eppendorf is a life science company that develops and sells instruments, consumables, and services for liquid, sample and cell handling in laboratories worldwide.
The company established the annual Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators in 1995 in association with the journal Nature. The award is intended to symbolise the close links between the company and the field of biomedicine. It is presented to a young researcher who has contributed to biomedical research in Europe based on methods of molecular biology, including novel analytical concepts.
The main focus is on investigating the molecular biological mechanisms of the human organism and then translating this research into practical findings. The long-term goal is the diagnosis and therapy of those diseases which have yet to be treated successfully.
- Be aged under 35 years of age at the time of application.
- Be based in Europe.
- Hold an advanced degree and be involved in biomedical research based on methods of molecular biology, including novel analytical concepts.
The prize includes a €20,000 financial award for personal use, an invitation to the prize ceremony at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg, Germany, plus an invite to visit Eppendorf AG in Hamburg. Additionally, there will be coverage of the recipient’s work by Nature in print and a podcast.
Applications should be submitted by the 15 January 2023 deadline.
