BSDB nominations, a new prize and a history call

Posted by , on 20 April 2015


  • The BSDB committee invites self-nominations for a new post graduate representative. Please, include a short text (max. 1 page) explaining your motivation and intentions to serve on the committee. Deadline will be 1 June 2015.
  • There will be a new BSDB women in science prize for mid-career female scientists (~ 15 years post PhD). Detailed information about the application procedure will be announced very soon (a nomination letter similar to the Waddington medal procedure and a 2 page CV). Deadline will be 1 July 2015. We would be grateful if you could start thinking about high profile candidates.
  • Similarly, the Waddington Medal nomination deadline will be 1 August 2015, and it is time to think about outstanding candidates. Nomination procedures are explained here.
  • Finally, the BSDB is approaching its 70th anniversary in 2018. We are concerned that documents of the pioneer days might get lost with increasing numbers of older BSDB members approaching retirement. Please, let us know if you have old documents including old newsletter (we currently can’t trace back further than 2nd half of 1999). We will make sure that such documents are being stored and/or digitalised and kept for future research. Furthermore, we would like to reconstruct the list of BSDB chairs starting from the inaugural meeting. Any help with this would be most welcome. Just contact Andreas Prokop under
