Date:1/29/2013

ir earlier editions have earned these awards, devised and organized from Spain, a firm place among the world's foremost award schemes. The BBVA Foundation is assisted in this initiative by the country's premier multidisciplinary research organization, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and by the presence of Spanish scientists and creative practitioners on the international juries.

The CSIC collaborates in the appointment of Technical Evaluation Committees for each prize category made up of acknowledged experts in the relevant domain. This Committee undertakes an initial assessment of candidates and draws up a reasoned shortlist for the consideration of the juries.

In the Biomedicine category, Committee members were Dolores González-Pacanowska, scientific researcher in the López-Neyra Institute of Parasitology and Biomedicine (CSIC) and coordinator of the Council's Biology and Medicine Area; Lisardo Boscá, Research Professor at the Alberto Sols Institute of Biomedical Research (UAM-CSIC); José Ramón Naranjo, scientific researcher with the National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB, CSIC); Sergio Moreno , Research Professor at the Salamanca Institute of Biomedical Research (IBSAL, University of Salamanca-CSIC); and Germán Rivas, Research Professor at the Centre for Biological Research (CIB, CSIC).

The Frontiers awards provide an international showcase for the best qualities of Spain and Spanish science, and have achieved the endorsement of the world scientific community, whose members have served on the juries and put forward nominations from their posts in eminent Spanish and international academic and research institutions.

In their fifth edition, the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards wish to offer support and recognition to the individuals and teams working for a better future for people through the advance
