Winners of the 2012 F1000Prime Faculty Member of the Year Awards

Following the success of last year's inaugural Faculty Member of the Year Awards, a panel of F1000 judges has presented one member from each of the 32 F1000Prime Faculties with an award to mark their significant contribution in 2012. Four Faculty Members have been presented with an award for a second year running, marking their exceptional contribution to the F1000Prime service: Andrew K Groves (Developmental Biology), Ferdinando Boero (Ecology), Kent Berridge (Neuroscience) and John A Lowe III (Pharmacology & Drug Discovery).

The global F1000Prime Faculty consists of over 5,000 peer-nominated expert scientists and clinical researchers, assisted by 5,000 associates. Eight Nobel Prize winners, 81 Fellows of The Royal Society, 12 Lasker Prize winners, 146 members of the National Academy of Sciences, and 104 Members of the Institute of Medicine belong to the Faculty.

Faculty Members are acknowledged experts who recommend the most important published articles for inclusion in F1000Prime. They review the articles, write brief commentaries, and assign a star rating. Associate Faculty Members (AFMs) are appointed by Faculty Members and assist them in the recommendation process. They also scan the tables of contents of all the major general and specialist journals to ensure that the literature in their topic area has been adequately covered. With the hard work and dedication of the Faculty, the core F1000Prime directory now includes over 130,000 article recommendations.

Commenting on this year's awards, Jane Hunter, Faculty of 1000 Managing Director said: "F1000Prime continues to grow and improve - 2012 saw our busiest year ever, and we are grateful for the support of our many Faculty Members from around the world who, collectively, made this possible. The announcement of our awards is our chance to celebrate and recognize the 32 Faculty Members, one from each Faculty, who worked especially diligently on our behalf in the past 12 months. Their energy and generosity makes the extraordinary contributions of this year's Faculty Member of the Year Award winners all the more remarkable."
