These Prizes are awarded to young clinical and non-clinical scientists to help them to pursue their personal research interests in biomedical science or related scientific areas as effectively as possible.
Prizes will be allocated on the basis of independent research-based proposals submitted to the Institute by the applicants and must be endorsed by the Head of Department. Proposals are assessed on the grounds of scientific quality and potential and are not constrained by diseases or disciplines.
The Prize award will be accompanied by a grant of £200,000 payable up front and usable over a period up to five years. The recipient will be known as a Lister Institute Research Prize Fellow for the whole of this five-year period.
