Young Investigator Award

Young Investigator Award – John Scott Lecture

The “Young Investigator Award” is a prestigious award presented annually to an early career researcher who has made a significant contribution to matrix biology and has excelled in the early stages of their research career. Following the generous bequest from the estate of Professor John Scott (1931-2012), the winner of the Young Investigator Award will be presented with a cheque for £1000, and will deliver the ‘John Scott Lecture’ at one of the biannual meetings of the society (normally at the Autumn meeting).

Early career researchers up to the age of 36 are encouraged to apply.

NB: The application deadline for the 2020 award is the 31st July 2020
