The Inspiring Science Award aims to recognise and reward quality science, inspire scholarship, and support researchers to pursue their passion in the Life Sciences by selecting the best published paper in the Life Sciences by a student from India each year.

The Award was announced in January 2016, at The TNQ Distinguished Lectures in the Life Sciences in Bengaluru. At the launch, Dr Emilie Marcus, ex-CEO and Editor-in-Chief, Cell Press, said, Building on the successful tradition of the lectureship in inspiring students to pursue their passion with careers in scientific research, we are creating The Inspiring Science Award in association with the lectures

The idea for this award was brought forth to us by Professor Anuranjan Anand of JNCASR and we would like to express our thanks and appreciation to him for helping extend the impact of the lecture series in promoting young Indian scientists.”
