The MSB Young Scientist Award is intended to give talented young scientists extra encouragement. It is presented annually during the MSB symposium to a young researcher whose outstanding work sets an example for other scientists. All presenters of an oral contribution who are less than 35 years of age at the time of their lecture are eligible for consideration. An international jury of both young and mature scientists judge the qualified presentations and choose a winner.
