The John Maddox Prize - Standing up for Science recognises researchers who stand up and speak out for science and evidence-based policy, advancing public discussion around difficult topics, despite challenges or hostility, and successfully making a change in public discourse or policy.

There are two categories: early-career and lifetime achievement.

The two prizes endorse and support researchers who courageously and skillfully advance the public discourse, successfully increasing public and government engagement with and acceptance of sound science and strong evidence.
