Nominations are invited for the 2014 Tom Gibson Memorial Award

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 prize of £2,500

  • 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 indicated – in the view of the nominators(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).

Professor Tom Gibson was a pioneer of plastic surgery and bio-engineering, whose many achievements included co-founding the renowned Bio-engineering Unit at the University of Strathclyde. The concept of an Award in his honour was devised by friends and colleagues from the University of Strathclyde, the University of Glasgow and the British Association of Plastic Surgeons, with support from the Gibson family.

The closing date for nominations for the 2014 award is 2 May 2014.
