WASHINGTON The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) Editorial Board has selected six PNAS papers to receive the 2009 Cozzarelli Prize, an award that recognizes outstanding contributions to the scientific disciplines represented by the National Academy of Sciences.
Papers selected for the Cozzarelli Prize were chosen from more than 3,700 research articles published by PNAS in 2009 and represent the six broadly defined classes under which the National Academy of Sciences is organized.
The annual award acknowledges recently published papers that reflect scientific excellence and originality. The award was established in 2005 and named the Cozzarelli Prize in 2007 to honor late PNAS Editor-in-Chief Nicholas R. Cozzarelli. The 2009 awards will be presented at the PNAS Editorial Board Meeting, and awardees will be recognized at the awards ceremony, during the National Academy of Sciences Annual Meeting on April 25, 2010, in National Harbor, Maryland.
