Nomination deadline February 15, 2010
Each year one individual is awarded with the Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research to acknowledge the work of an individual or group who has made a significant, transformational contribution toward the improvement of human health through the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of disease. The award consists of a $100,000 cash prize, a sculpture, and international recognition.
To nominate an individual, you must submit a brief biography and their 10 most important research publications. Individuals can nominate a single person or group, but self nominations are not accepted. To be eligible to receive the award, you must be a working scientist in academia or industry. The award is given for a single body of work.
