Science, Amersham Biosciences announce call for applicants for 2002 Prize for young scientists

Piscataway, NJ--11 June--The journal Science and Amersham Biosciences, the life sciences business of Amersham plc (LSE: NYSE: OSE: AHM), today announced a call for applicants for the 2002 Amersham Biosciences and Science Prize for young scientists. The deadline for entries in this year's prize is July 15, 2002. Established in 1995, the prize has been an important vehicle for Ph.D. graduate students from around the world and their exploration of molecular biology.

"Along with Amersham Biosciences, Science is committed to supporting up-and-coming scientists," said Monica Bradford, Executive Editor of Science. "The future of molecular biology rests on the next generation of researchers, and we are proud to be part of the prize, which nutures these men and women and the important studies they conduct."

The co-sponsored prize recognizes and rewards outstanding scientists that have completed their Ph.D. in a molecular biology subject* during 2001. Both Amersham Biosciences and Science believe that support of scientists at the beginning of their careers is critical for continued scientific progress. The grand prize winner will have his or her thesis paper published in Science, the weekly global research publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and will receive $25,000 USD at the awards ceremony. In recognition of the global nature of science, the prize categories also include regional winners.

"Attention is moving from identifying genes and proteins to developing a real understanding of the role they play in living organisms and in the cause of disease, often called functional biology," said Andrew Carr, CEO of Amersham Biosciences. "The Science prize has recognized young scientists who have already made a significant contribution in this field. Encouraging scientific progress and ultimately enhancement of health care is the goal of the prize."
