BMC 4th Annual Research Awards

In order to "celebrate the best published research across medical and biological science within any of BioMed Central's open access journals", BMC created the BioMed Central Annual Research Awards, now on its 4th edition.

If you publish in one of BioMed Central's 199 journals before the end of 2009 (December 31st) you'll be eligible for nomination from other readers, reviewers or editors (you can't nominate yourself), in the categories of "Biology" or "Medicine" for "best published research".

The winners, who will get $5,000, will be chosen by a panel of BioMed Central's editorial team members (Peter Newmark and Michaela Torkar for the Biology Award) and invited external experts.

Last year's Biology award, was given to Basil Honegger at The University of Zürich, for his article "Imp-L2, a putative homolog of vertebrate IGF-binding protein 7, counteracts insulin signaling in Drosophila and is essential for starvation resistance" published in the top-tier Journal of Biology.

You can start nominating articles here. If you nominate an article, let us know, or even better, write a post explaining why you chose that article and get it published here at MolBio Research Highlights!
