Nominations for the 2009 Australasian Science Prize are closing this  
Friday.

The Australasian Science Prize, awarded annually, provides priceless  
recognition to Australian scientists whose work best encapsulates  
these ideals. Criteria considered by the judging panel include  
scientific originality, breadth of impact, and communication to both  
the scientific and broader communities.

The discovery of ancient fossilised embryos, the development of  
semiconductors that use the absence of electrons to carry charge,  
optical fibres made from cheap polymers, and DNA enzymes that block  
the growth of tumours are some of the inspiring research developments  
that have been awarded the Australasian Science Prize.

Australasian Science is Australia’s only monthly science magazine, and  
since 1938 has dedicated its pages to world-class science from our  
most inspiring minds. The magazine’s Patrons are Nobel Laureate Prof  
Peter Doherty and renowned science broadcaster Robyn Williams,  
representing excellence in science and its communication.

Nominations for the 2009 Australasian Science Prize must be received  
by 5 pm on Friday 11 September 2009. For information on how to  
nominate see australasianscience.com.au.

The winner(s) will be announced in the November/December 2009 issue of  
Australasian Science.
