EMBO Members and EMBO Young Investigators are invited every year to nominate candidates for the medal. To be considered, a nomination must be supported by three EMBO Members (one proposer and two sponsors) and must include:

  1. Nomination form
  2. CV of the proposed candidate
  3. Statement from each of the three EMBO Members indicating why she or he believes the candidate should be considered for the medal

The deadline for receipt of nominations is 1 February.


Candidates for EMBO Membership can simultaneously be nominated for the Gold Medal.


Selection of the winner
A committee comprising the EMBO Council, the Director of EMBO and the Secretary General of EMBO will be responsible for selecting the winner of the medal.


Candidates who do not win the award will automatically be reconsidered for the award in the following year if still eligible.
