PNAS announces 6 2011 Cozzarelli Prize recipients
Date:2/21/2012

WASHINGTON The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) Editorial Board has selected six papers published by PNAS in 2011 to receive the Cozzarelli Prize, an award that recognizes outstanding contributions to the scientific disciplines represented by the National Academy of Sciences. Papers selected were chosen from more than 3,500 research articles that appeared in the journal last year and represent the six broadly defined classes under which the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is organized.

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. The 2011 awards will be presented at the PNAS Editorial Board meeting, and awardees will be recognized at an awards ceremony during the NAS Annual Meeting on April 29, 2012, in Washington, D.C.
