RULES OF ELIGIBILITY FOR THE 2021 BioInnovation Institute & SCIENCE  Prize for Innovation

  • Entrants must have finished their Ph.D.-level education within the last 10 years and must hold an M.D., Ph.D., D.V.M, Pharm.D., or combination of these degrees at the time of entry. If the applicant has more than one advanced degree, the 10 years are counted from the date that all degrees were completed in the case of uninterrupted training, such as a dual degree M.D.-Ph.D. program.
  • The entrant's essay must describe significant advances in producing results that were protected as intellectual property and licensed to a commercial entity – for example, proprietary drugs and biologics, diagnostics, therapeutic interventions, health care information technology, or new solutions to biobased production of fuels, chemicals and foods. We welcome applications from those who take risks to address relevant and exciting questions with creative approaches, even if the outcome may be considered a negative result.
  • The entrant must have performed or directed the work described in the essay.
  • The research must have been performed during the previous three years.
  • Employees of the BioInnovation Institute, its subsidiaries, Science and AAAS, and their relatives are not eligible for the prize.
