The Royal Society Africa Prize is to recognise research scientists based in Africa who are making an innovative contribution to the biological sciences, including basic medical science, which contributes significantly to capacity building in Africa.
The Award consists of an £11,000 grant towards a research project that is linked to an African centre of scientific excellence, which would normally be a university, or equivalent research centre, a bronze medal and a gift of £1,000.
This award was previously the Royal Society Pfizer Award which was last awarded in 2016.
