Deadline for Humanity


Science can change lives for the better – from making medicines, to providing cleaner water and safer food. The Humanity in Science Award recognizes and rewards a recent scientific breakthrough that can potentially have a real impact on humankind’s health and wellbeing. The award is open to researchers worldwide and the grand winner(s) will receive a prize of $25,000.


There are two ways to enter. You can nominate the work of yourself or your team with an essay, or nominate a peer’s work by submitting a letter of recommendation. The nomination must describe how the work has impacted humanity – and the work must have been completed in the last three years.

Full entry and submission details can be found at:


The deadline for entries is May 1, 2017.


The previous winners are Waseem Asghar (2016), and Peter H Seeberger and Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern (2015). Using paper and flexible substrates as materials for biosensors, Asghar and his collaborators identified a new rapid and cost-effective way to diagnose diseases and monitor treatment in point-of-care settings. In 2015, Seeberger and Seidel-Morgenstern won the award for their work on the continuous flow production and purification of less expensive malaria medications.

About the Author
Rich Whitworth

Rich Whitworth completed his studies in medical biochemistry at the University of Leicester, UK, in 1998. To cut a long story short, he escaped to Tokyo to spend five years working for the largest English language publisher in Japan. "Carving out a career in the megalopolis that is Tokyo changed my outlook forever. When seeing life through such a kaleidoscopic lens, it's hard not to get truly caught up in the moment." On returning to the UK, after a few false starts with grey, corporate publishers, Rich was snapped up by Texere Publishing, where he spearheaded the editorial development of The Analytical Scientist. "I feel honored to be part of the close-knit team that forged The Analytical Scientist – we've created a very fresh and forward-thinking publication." Rich is now also Content Director of Texere Publishing, the company behind The Analytical Scientist.
