Online nominations for the Life Sciences Breakthrough Prize are now open. The awards , created earlier this year, are funded by Mark Zuckerberg, Sergey Brin, Anne Wojcicki, and Yuri Milner, and will be announced in 2014.
The 11 winners of this year's prizes--it was a bumper year with 11 researchers each taking home a $3 million bounty--will choose the five 2014 winners.
Awards chairman Art Levinson said this: “We all benefit from the brilliance and commitment of researchers at the frontiers of medical science. This is a chance to reward their achievements and support their future work. If you think someone deserves a Breakthrough Prize, you have the power to put them in the running.”
Nominations close on October 2, 2013.
