Announcing the ELRIG ECP Impact Award 2019

ELRIG Early Career Professional Impact Award

ELRIG looks to recognize and develop Early Career Professionals (ECPs) that deliver impactful science and contributions to early, pre-clinical drug discovery and the drug discovery community.

The prestigious ECP Impact Award, sponsored by SelectScience, will be given to the ECP judged to have made the highest impact in the field, either through their own science or technology development work, or through their facilitation of drug discovery by leadership and/or developing collaborations or networks. Philanthropic and volunteering contributions will also be considered.
The awardee will be invited to give a 25 minute platform presentation on their work at the annual ELRIG Drug Discovery conference, and will be interviewed to promote their achievement. A prize of £500 will be given to be spent on further career development, or paid to a charity of the recipient’s choice if they are unable to accept the prize directly.

ECPs are invited to self-nominate by submitting:
a 1-page, 300-word synopsis of their contribution and its impact on early drug discovery, using the downloadable pdf form.

The closing date for submission for the 2019 award is September 16th 2019.
