The MSB 2017 Young Scientists Award is intended to give talented young scientists extra encouragement. It will be presented to a young researcher whose outstanding work sets an example for other scientists. All presenters of an oral contribution who are less than 35 years of age at the time of their lecture are eligible for consideration. An international jury of both young and matured scientists chaired by Prof. Philip Britz-McKibbin, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada will judge the qualified presentations and choose a winner.

Criteria are:

  • Significant and original contribution to basic and/or applied research in microscale separations or bioanalysis;
  • Clarity of presentation, structure of content and smoothness of flow;
  • Adequacy and persuasiveness of presenting;
  • Responsiveness to audience questions and ability to discuss presented work.

The price consists of a certificate and a cash amount (sponsored by Janssen Biologics). The winner will be announced and awarded at the Closing Ceremony on Wednesday.
