The Inspiring Science Award is for the best published Life Sciences paper by a student from India.

The Inspiring Science Award aims to recognize 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 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.

Entries close on 15th October 2022 at midnight IST.

  • The research paper must have been published online for the first time between October 1, 2021 and September 30, 2022.

To Apply

The Award’s jury comprises over 40 eminent scientists from across the country, organised in four geographic panels to avoid conflict of interest issues. Every paper is evaluated by a minimum of three jury members. The top two papers from each panel are evaluated again by panel chairs, and two internationally renowned scientists who are independent of the jury process. We do not make any information on the jury publicly available.
