Awards

ISME presents three prestigious awards at the biennial symposia:

The Jim Tiedje Award 
in recognition for outstanding lifetime contribution to microbial ecology

The ISME Young Investigators Award
recognizes young scientists who have made significant contribution to microbial ecology

The David C. White Most Innovative Student Poster Award
to stimulate and thank our students for innovative thinking

 

Introduced for the first time at ISME14 in Copenhagen, we are very pleased to announce two new awards:

The Bill Costerton Award
