The Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine, which is a registered charity established to support biomedical and related research, now invites applications from outstanding young researchers for its 2015 Research Prizes. The Institute seeks diversity amongst its Prize-winners – there is no stereotype of the ideal candidate – applicants may be working in university departments or research institutes, in any area of biomedical research, and be scientifically or medically trained. The Institute is pleased that over the years women have been well represented amongst its Prize-winners. However, what Prize-winners will have in common is the conduct of excellent research and the ability of the award to help establish or further their independent research careers. At least three awards will be made based on a number of criteria: the originality, and quality of the proposed research; the achievements of the applicant in the context of their own particular circumstances. Finally the beneficial impact that the Prize would have on the recipient’s career taking account of their research environment and other funding will be an important criteria.
