Cozzarelli Prize

  • The annual award acknowledges papers that reflect scientific excellence and originality. The award was established in 2005 and named in 2007 to honor late PNAS Editor-in-Chief Nicholas R. Cozzarelli.

    This award is given annually to six papers published in PNAS.

    We are now accepting nominations for articles published in 2017. Nominations can be sent to pnas{at}nas.edu and should include the article citation and a brief description of the work.
