[Innovators in Science Award] 2-Weeks Until Nominations Open on February 1, 2023

On behalf of the New York Academy of Sciences, I am pleased to invite University of Bergen to submit two nominations for the 2024 Innovators in Science Award.

Established in November 2016, the Innovators in Science Award is a global award recognizing a promising Early-Career Scientist’s and an outstanding Senior Scientist’s contributions to biomedical science and is intended to support their commitment to innovative research. Two prizes of US$200,000 are awarded each Award cycle to winning scientists who have distinguished themselves for the creativity and impact of their research in a designated therapeutic area.  The award is administered by the New York Academy of Sciences and sponsored by Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

To draw attention to the increasing global cancer burden, the 2024 Innovators in Science Award will recognize scientists from around the globe for their exceptional research in Cancer Immunology. Cancer remains the second leading cause of death worldwide, exacerbated by the difficulty in progressing novel therapeutics from the research lab to the clinic.

2023-2024 Call for Proposals from the Peder Sather Center for Advanced Study at UC Berkeley

Dear Colleagues:

The Peder Sather Center for Advanced Study supports projects carried out by researchers at UC Berkeley in collaboration with researchers from eight Norwegian universities. The Center offers grants between $10K and $25K. Funds are made available for two academic years.

Grants can support activities such as workshops, mini-conferences, virtual intellectual exchanges, the undertaking of exploratory and pilot studies, activities such as PhD student exchanges, longer-term stays for Principal Investigators, the collection and analysis of data, and other core research activities.

Interested applicants should visit the Proposal Application Guidelines on the Peder Sather Center Website. All application materials must be submitted by the deadline of April 3, 2023.

Eligibility
Eligible collaborating applicants from both UC Berkeley and Norwegian consortium institutions must be in contact with one another prior to applying for funds, and have a letter of collaboration commitment signed by both parties. There must be at least one Principal Investigator from UC Berkeley and one from a Norwegian consortium institution.

Principal Investigators from UC Berkeley must be ladder-rank faculty (i.e. hold Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor titles); no substitutions may be made. Principal Investigators from Norwegian consortium institutions must hold the position of either postdoktor (on the condition that the individual is able to document consistent employment at the consortium institution for the duration of the project), førsteamanuensis or professor (i.e. hold positions equivalent to Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor titles in the US).

Members of research teams who are not Principal Investigators themselves can hold other positions such as lecturer, visiting scholar, postdoctoral fellow, or graduate student. In order to receive indirect funding, however, research team members must be affiliated in some way with the participating institutions. Non-affiliated team members are not eligible to receive direct or indirect support from the Center.

Best regards,
The Peder Sather Center for Advanced Study
