Prize news - John Maddox 'Standing up for Science; Prize 2015

John Maddox Prize for Standing up for Science
Do you know someone who has promoted sound science and evidence? Who of your colleagues has addressed misleading information in a public forum? Is there someone in your networks who has brought sound evidence to a public debate? Nominate them for the 2015 John Maddox Prize for Standing up for Science.

The John Maddox Prize, which we run in conjunction with Nature and the Kohn Foundation, rewards an individual who has promoted sound science and evidence on a matter of public interest. Its emphasis is on those who have faced difficulty or hostility in doing so. Nominations of active researchers who have yet to receive recognition for their public-interest work are particularly welcomed.

The winner of the John Maddox Prize will receive £2000, and an announcement of the winner will be published in Nature. The award is presented at a reception in November.
