Nominations open for the Maddox Prize for Standing Up for Science

Chris from Sense About Science writes, "Nominations are now open for the 2016 John Maddox Prize for Standing up for Science. Now in its fifth year, the prize recognises the work of an individual anywhere in the world who promotes sound science and evidence on a matter of public interest, facing difficulty or hostility in doing so."

"A joint initiative of the science journal Nature, the Kohn Foundation, and charity Sense about Science, the prize is named in honour of Sir John Maddox FRS, who was editor of Nature for 22 years and a founding trustee of Sense about Science. A passionate and tireless communicator and defender of science, Maddox engaged with difficult debates, inspiring others to do the same.

"Do you know someone who stands up for science? Nominate them here."
