M.R. Jisnuson Svasti Outstanding Protein Scientist of Thailand Award


Over the last 20 years, protein research in Thailand has developed greatly, leading to the foundation of the Protein Society of Thailand (PST), which was formally registered in 2006. The Outstanding Protein Scientist of Thailand Award (Outstanding PST Award) is intended to recognize outstanding researchers in protein science, promote protein research, and increase the visibility of the Protein Society of Thailand. This award was initiated with an Endowment from Emeritus Professor M.R. Jisnuson Svasti, the first President of the Protein Society of Thailand in 2017. The award alternates year to year between senior and junior scientists with the Outstanding PST Award given in odd numbered years (western calendar) and the Young PST given in even numbered years. For 2019, we are accepting nominations for the Professor Dr. M.R. Jisnuson Svasti Outstanding PST Award.

1.   The Outstanding PST Award is awarded every other year to recognize scientists with outstanding research in or related to protein science.
2.   The Award has a value of 40,000 baht plus a plaque of recognition.
3.   Typically, only one awardee will be selected, but in the event that two candidates have equal merit, the award may be shared by two recipients.
4.   The Outstanding PST Award recipient will be presented with the award and give a talk at the Annual PST Symposium (this year hosted by Kasetsart University at the Maruay Garden Hotel, Bangkok, 22-23 July, 2019).
