Call for nominations – Microbiology

The Carlos J. Finlay UNESCO Prize for Microbiology is now open for applications.

Funded by the Government of Cuba, the Prize aims to reward the efforts of an individual or institution, or of a non-governmental organization or entity or other entity which, through research and development, has made an outstanding contribution to the field of microbiology (including immunology, molecular biology, genetics etc.) and its applications.

Nominations will be made by the governments of Member States, in consultation with their National Commissions, and we recommend that UK expressions of interest are sent to us by 30 June 2017, as each application will be peer reviewed:  http://www.unesco.org.uk/engage/apply-for-unesco-prizes/
