Thudichum Young Scientist Award

Apply for the Thudichum Young Scientist Award

Every 2 years, the Phospholipid Research Center (PRC) presents the Thudichum Young Scientist Award to young scientists responsible for outstanding publications that focus on recent significant contributions to research into phospholipids.

Before the biannual symposium any researcher (35 years of age or younger) can apply for the Thudichum Young Scientist Award by submitting relevant scientific publications. The Scientific Advisory Council of the PRC will select the winner, who will present his/her work and receive the Thudichum Young Scientist Award at the symposium.

The winner is the guest of honor of the symposium and will receive a cash prize of €5,000 for his/her achievements. The Thudichum Young Scientist Award is presented either by the president of the PRC or by a previous winner of the Thudichum Life Award. The winner of the Thudichum Young Scientist Award will have the opportunity to give a short summary of his/her scientific achievements.
