GE Healthcare Life Sciences urges Indian Scientists to Compete for Award

20th June, 2012: Bangalore: Global healthcare major, GE Healthcare Life Sciences has exhorted young Indian scientists and scholars in molecular biology to compete for its prestigious science award, which includes a $25,000 cash prize.

"Support for young scientists at the start of their careers is critical to the future of continued life sciences research. Past winners have made an impact in life sciences research and have used the prize as a stepping-stone in their research careers," the Britain-based company said in a statement here on Saturday.

The award prize, co-sponsored by the acclaimed journal "Science", will be given to the best scientist/researcher whose 1,000-word essay on his/her doctoral thesis will be selected for publication in the weekly international magazine.

"Cash prizes of $5,000 each will also be awarded to finalists from four geographic regions - Asia, Africa, Americas and Europe. All the winners will be invited to Stockholm in Sweden in December to interact with the current Nobel laureates," GE Healthcare chief executive Kieran Murphy said.

Instituted 15 years ago (1996) to recognise talent of young researchers worldwide, the GE and Science prize encourages scientific progress in understanding gene's proteins. The award also contributes to the global research effort to tackle some of healthcare's pressing challenges.

"Supporting young scientists as they embark on careers is vital to the future of molecular biology. The award acknowledges the important studies the promising scientists conduct and encourages them to advance global scientific understanding," Science executive editor Monica Bradford said.

According to GE Healthcare India general manager Anurag Gupta, as a subject, life sciences is becoming important in India to the pharmaceutical industry and to improve the health of the people.

"We seek to encourage our young scientists at the start of their careers and the award is one way of recognizing their achievements," Gupta said.

Molecular biology is defined as that part of biology which attempts to interpret biological events in terms of the physio-chemical properties of molecules in a cell.
