WASHINGTON The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) has awarded the Cozzarelli Prize to six outstanding PNAS papers published in 2006.
In 2005, PNAS established the annual Paper of the Year Prize to recognize recently published PNAS articles of scientific excellence and originality. The lab motto of Nick Cozzarelli, the late Editor-in-Chief, was "Blast ahead," as he encouraged researchers to push the envelope of discovery. In his honor, this year the award is renamed the Cozzarelli Prize. This year's awards will be presented at the PNAS Editorial Board Meeting on April 29, 2007, in Washington, D.C.
Papers receiving the Cozzarelli Prize were chosen from the 3,300 research articles published in PNAS in 2006 and represent the six broadly defined classes under which the National Academy of Sciences is organized.
