Young Investigator Awards

Conditions and eligibility of applicants

All pre-doctoral students and MD and post doctoral trainees with no more than 3 years post-doctoral research training are eligible for these prestigious awards.

If you wish to be considered for an award:

  1. You must submit an abstract as the presenting author (usually this means first author).
  2. Send a letter of application including a personal presentation of you and your work.
  3. Also included in the application:
    1. A statement clarifying your personal amount of work versus your supervisor and co-authors.
    2. A copy of your abstract.
    3. An extended abstract (4 A4 pages).
    4. Your CV.

All this should be sent to the President of the Society (Anita.Sydbom@ki.se) by January 20th, 2012.

It is anticipated that the first and second prize winners will be invited to publish their papers in Inflammation Research. The papers will undergo the normal reviewing process. However, if another journal is more suitable for the work, an acknowledgement that the work has been awarded a Young Investigators Award by the EHRS must be included.

The eligibility of the candidates will be judged by the Bursaries and Awards Committee, composed of Officers of the Society and Council members. The committee will select ca. 5 finalists, who will receive a certificate and a cash award and/or a prize.

The finalists present their work at a 10 min oral presentation followed by a 5 min discussion.

Depending on the number and quality of the applicants, awards may also be made for Poster presentations.
