Eligibility

Nominees must demonstrate outstanding accomplishment in applied and/or biotechnological research or development. Nominees should be actively engaged in research or development at the time that the nomination is made. Nominations can be based on a single exceptionally significant achievement or the aggregate of a number of exemplary achievements. While scientists at any career stage are eligible, this award is best suited for established investigators.

Nominators must address how the nominees meet the criteria and how they have gone “above and beyond” to contribute to the field.
