Date:3/20/2008

The winners of the 2007 BioMed Central Research Awards were announced yesterday at an awards ceremony at the Royal Society of Medicine. The event was attended by shortlisted authors, eminent researchers from around the world, open access advocates and science journalists.

The Research Awards, now in their second year, recognize excellence in research which has been made universally accessible by open access publication. The Awards celebrate the best medical and biological research published in any of BioMed Centrals open access journals in the last year.

The Medicine and Biology awards, sponsored by Microsoft Research, were won by the following research articles:

Medicine Award - Xioalong Meng and Thomas Ichim
Endometrial regenerative cells: A novel stem cell population
Journal of Translational Medicine

Biology Award - Markus Rasler
Dynamic rerouting of the carbohydrate flux is key to counteracting oxidative stress
Journal of Biology.

Also in attendance was Ken Wood, the Deputy Managing Director of Microsoft ResearchCambridge, who commented, Microsoft is extremely pleased to sponsor these open access research awards. They support the recognition and acknowledgment of the highest-quality scientific research that is broadly available to the entire scientific community, and in which Microsoft Research has a direct interest. This is an important annual event and Microsoft is very proud to be involved in this endeavor.

This year, a new Award was introduced - The Journal of Medical Case Reports Award. The winning entry for this inaugural award was:

JMCR Award - Phuong Mai
'A possible new syndrome with growth-hormone secreting pituitary adenoma, colonic polyposis, lipomatosis, lentigines and renal carcinoma in association with familial testicular germ cell malignancy: A case report'

BioMed Central Publisher Matthew Cockerill said We are delighted with the diversity and quality of this years award nominees and would like to congratulate the winners, and those shortlisted, on their exceptional research. We would also like to thank our sponsors, Microsoft Research and Pfizer, whose support made the awards possible.

Guests at the event were treated to an entertaining talk on the Galapagos Islands from Henry Nicholls, journalist and writer. As part of their commitment to open access, Pfizer were proud to be the sponsor the Research Awards Dinner.
