The SGMS award is awarded to a promising scientist working in Switzerland or a promising Swiss scientist working abroad, for outstanding independent research in the field of mass spectrometry.
At the time of the award nomination deadline the candidate should be younger than 40. The nomination should be done by a senior colleague, but self-nominations are also welcome. Up to two letters of support can be submitted, together with a CV and a publication list of the nominee.
The prize is awarded after evaluation by an international panel (Prof G Allmaier, Prof C Costello, Prof G Cooks, Prof Y Tsybin, Dr M Suter, Dr B Gerrits). The award ceremony takes place at the annual SGMS meeting and includes a plenary presentation given by the awardee.
