Prof. Gleb Yushin, Co-Editor-in-Chief of Materials Today, has been named a finalist in the 2017 Blavatnik National Awards for Young Scientists.

The finalists are separated across the Chemistry, Physical Sciences & Engineering and Life Sciences fields from a pool of 308 nominees – the most promising scientific researchers aged 42 years and younger at America’s top academic and research institutions. The 30 Finalists will now compete for the largest unrestricted awards of their kind for early career scientists and engineers. Ultimately, three winners will be selected based on their extraordinary accomplishments and their promise for the future.

The Blavatnik Family Foundation, with the guidance of the New York Academy of Sciences, founded the Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists in 2007 to celebrate the innovative achievements of young postdoctoral and faculty scientists who work in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut.

The National Laureates and Finalists will be honored at an annual awards ceremony on 25 September 2017, at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
