New Investigator Award 2016: Finalists


Voting is now closed – thank you to all who voted for our 6 finalists! We will soon reveal the winner in due course – keep an eye out for this announcement on this page.

Over the past few months you have had the opportunity to meet our 6 finalists, find out more about their work as early career researchers and vote for your winner.

The 2016 Award is being held in association with Waters Corporation and the European Bioanalysis Forum, with the winner receiving a US$1000 prize and a year’s subscription to Bioanalysis. The winner will be announced  and will have their award presented at the EBF Open Meeting taking place in Barcelona in November this year, where they will also present their work.

New Investigator Award 2016 Finalists

andrew baldwin headshotAndrew Baldwin – University of Oxford (UK)
“I have enjoyed numerous collaborations during my career, but few have been as productive and enjoyable as this [with Andrew], due in large part to Andrew’s dedication, enthusiasm and novel ideas. Consequently, his standing in the bioanalytical community is already high and I believe he has the potential and application to become a world-leader in structural biology, and in NMR in particular.”
