The newly launched NOMIS & Science Young Explorer Award recognizes bold, early-career researchers with an M.D., Ph.D., or M.D./Ph.D. who ask fundamental questions at the intersection of the social and life sciences. It is awarded to scientists who conduct research with an enthusiasm that catalyzes cross-disciplinary collaboration and who take risks to creatively address relevant and exciting questions.
Award winners will receive a cash prize up to $15,000 and their essay submissions will be published in Science. They will also be invited to share their ideas with leading scientists in the respective fields at an award ceremony and to present their research to the NOMIS Board of Directors for potential future funding.
