Trainee Awards (formerly Young Scientist Award)

The MSB Trainee Award(s) are intended to give talented trainees extra encouragement.

Depending on availability, the award(s) will be presented to a graduate student(s) or postdoctoral fellow(s) whose outstanding work sets an example for other scientists. All presenters who are graduate students or postdocs at the end date of the meeting are eligible for consideration (proof of status as will be required). An international jury of scientists will judge the qualified presentations and choose a winner.

  • Significant and original contribution to basic and/or applied research in microscale separations or bioanalysis.
  • Clarity of presentation, structure of content and smoothness of flow.
  • Adequacy and persuasiveness of presenting.
  • Responsiveness to audience questions and ability to discuss presented work.
  • The prize consists of a certificate and depending on availability, a cash amount.
