The Evolution, Medicine, & Public Health Foundation invites nominations for the Omenn Prize of $5000 for the best article published in 2015 in any scientific journal on a topic related to evolution in the context of medicine and public health. It will be awarded on June 25th at the 2016 ISEMPH Meeting in Durham, NC.
The prize, provided by the generosity of Gilbert S Omenn, will be awarded to the first author of the winning article. Authors are encouraged to nominate their own articles, but nominations of articles by others are also welcome.
Any relevant peer-reviewed article with a publication date of 2015 for the final version of the article is eligible, but the prize is intended for work that uses evolutionary principles to advance understanding of a disease or disease process. The prize committee will give priority to articles with implications for human health, but many basic science or theoretical articles have such implications. buy nexium 20mg
