Finalists – who are chosen by a range of experts from the bioanalytical filed – will also be featured in Bioanalysis. The public then vote for their favorite nominees, with the winner selected from the two nominees with the highest number of votes.
The winner will receive: US $1,000, courtesy of our sponsor Waters, a 1-year subscription to Bioanalysis, and complementary open access publication of their next accepted paper. We are currently finalizing additional details of the reward.
Nominees can be from academia or industry, in any area of bioanalysis, but must be aged 35 or under, or be in the first 5 years of their bioanalytical career.
The winner of the 2014 Young Investigator Award, XiuJun (James) Li, commented:
“I am excited to be chosen as the winner of the 2014 Bioanalysis Young Investigator Award. It is my great pleasure to be recognized by this reputable award and by the international bioanalysis community. I believe this award will encourage me to work harder with my colleagues and contribute more to this ever growing field of bioanalysis. I also want to take this opportunity to thank my mentors (Paul Li, George Whitesides and Richard Mathies) for their invaluable training in this field.”
We are proud to announce that Waters will again be sponsoring the Young Investigator Award. Russell Mortishire-Smith, Senior Consultant Scientist, Pharmaceutical Business (Waters), commented on the importance of rewarding promising early career scientists:
“By supporting the development of a talented next generation in the field of bioanalysis, we hope to help these young researchers as they advance their careers and help build the future for drug discovery and development. As the science of quantitation moves beyond traditional techniques and focuses on innovative technologies that challenge our current methods and bring new and exciting opportunities into our reach, we believe that it is important to identify and reward promising early-career scientists as they inspire us and our community.”
