Tom Gibson Memorial Award - £2500 Prize

The Award aims to recognise outstanding accomplishment and/or outstanding potential of young medics/scientists below the age of 40, who are employed by, or associated closely with, the Universities of Glasgow or Strathclyde.  The areas of activity of nominees should be multidisciplinary in nature and should be oriented to enhancing developments in medicine and/or in its related sciences and technologies.

This prestigious award takes the form of a £2,500 prize.

  • The Award may be made for a specific achievement or for a body of work extending over a period of years
  • An award may be made where the potential of early work indicates – in the view of the nominator(s) and expert referees – a strong possibility of achievement
  • Consideration will be given to achievements in all medical disciplines and related science(s) and technology
  • The Award, while normally made to an individual, may also be made to a group, especially where this reflects the multidisciplinary bias of the Award, and where the members of the group meet the criteria selection
  • Individuals and groups from within the communities of the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde are eligible (lecturers, researchers, visiting lecturers or professors, honorary fellows, alumni)
