The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) calls application for Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists 2021. The Prize is awarded annually to one young scientist for outstanding life science research for which he/she was awarded a doctoral degree in the previous two years.

Eligible Topics

The topic of the entrant’s thesis research must be in one of the following categories: Cell and Molecular Biology; Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology approaches; Ecology and​ Environment; Molecular Medicine. Eligible entrants must have been awarded their doctoral degree in 2018 or 2019, and the subject of their thesis should match one of the Subject Tracks below. The winners from each category will compete for the grand prize.


The prize money for Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists 2021 is US$30,000 for the grand prize winner and US$10,000 for each of the category winners.


The research described in the entrant’s thesis must fall within one of the following categories (Subject Tracks):

  • Cell and Molecular Biology: research in this category includes cellular and molecular processes at levels ranging from single molecule to single cell to tissue and organ systems,
  • Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology approaches: Research in this category focuses on genomics, proteomics, integrative omics and systems biology approaches, including computational, to facilitate comprehensive understanding of living cells, organisms and species,
  • Ecology and Environment: research in this category encompasses interactions between organisms and their environment, and how these processes are influenced by human activity,
  • Molecular Medicine: research in this category aims at building on the molecular understanding of disease in humans to develop preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, including individualized medicine.
