The AMOREPACIFIC Great Global Next Generation Research Awards is designed to recognize the contributions of Korean researchers, working in molecular and cellular biology fields.
Supported by AmorePacific Corporation, the Korean Society for Molecular and Cellular Biology (KSMCB) will select five young researchers and provide them with research grants worth ten million KRW each year for the next five years.
The eligibility for nomination is limited to full-time and part-time researchers at no higher than doctoral level, as well as graduate students and doctoral students who are the first authors of the paper published annually in the fields of molecular and cellular biology.
The award ceremony took place in the conference room of COEX, as part of an international annual meeting, organized by the Korean Society for Molecular and Cellular Biology on Tuesday, September 12, 2017.
At the ceremony, ten million KRW in research funding was given to five young researchers.
