Joint BCS/BAS/BSCR Young Investigator Prize
Deadlines to be announced shortly
Combined BCS/BAS/BSCR with the top 5 applications being selected for oral presentation on Tuesday lunchtime with a first prize of £1,000. Open to basic scientists who are no more than 5 years post-PhD and clinicians who have not attained consultant status. Application requires submission of a brief communication (1,000 words with up to 5 tables/figures). Please note that if your submission for the Young Investigator Prize is not shortlisted for presentation, it is not automatically entered as a standard poster abstract submission. To do this you will need to separately submit your abstract following the normal submission process and you are encouraged to do this – if your application for the Young Investigator Prize is subsequently shortlisted then you will have the option of withdrawing your standard poster abstract.
