Nominate your science champion for the 2018 John Maddox Prize

10 May 2018

Nominations are now open for the John Maddox Prize for Standing up for Science 2018, which recognises the work of individuals who promote sound science and evidence on a matter of public interest, facing difficulty or hostility in doing so.

Sir John Maddox, whose name this prize commemorates, was a passionate and tireless champion and defender of science, engaging with difficult debates and inspiring others to do the same. As a writer and editor, he changed attitudes and perceptions, and strove for better understanding and appreciation of science throughout his long working life.

The winner of the John Maddox Prize receives £3000, and an announcement of the winner is published in Nature. The award is presented each year at a reception in November.

Nominations close on 3 August 2018.
