December means that it’s time for The Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists. It’s one of the things that we have been involved with as an organisation over the years that we are most proud of as it helps encourage young scientists to enter the profession. The awards ceremony is being held next week at The Grand Hotel Stockholm, where we will be announcing the winners. This year is especially exciting as I’m the host for the evening. Goodness knows this will stretch my personal science knowledge to the very limits. Should be interesting!
