About the Award
The John Kendrew Young Scientist Award (JKA) was launched in 2007 as an initiative from the EMBL Pensioner's Association to honour EMBL's first Director General, Sir John Kendrew (1975-1982), and to support scientists in the early stages of their career.
The Award recognises excellence in science and / or science communication 2-7 years AFTER leaving EMBL, and consists of a gold medal, a cash prize of €2,000 (this was increased from €1,000 to €2,000 in 2013), the logistical costs of bringing the winner to EMBL Heidelberg to present a talk at the Award Ceremony on EMBL Lab Day, and meetings with EMBL scientists of the winner's choice.
