We encourage wide use of the UK Biobank research resource. This includes scientists just embarking on their research career, who may be the research leaders when the UK Biobank resource is at its most productive in years to come.

We are especially looking to celebrate the creativity and imagination of early-career researchers (up to 5 years’ post qualification). If that’s you, why not enter our competition to find 2022 UK Biobank Early-Career Researcher of the Year.

Not only will that look good on your CV – but there is a top prize of £1,000 up for grabs and two runners up prizes of £500 each. Plus 20 submissions will be invited to present a poster at the conference in London.

To enter you must be a researcher registered to use UK Biobank data. The abstract you submit must relate to approved research by you that is planned to start, or is under way or was completed using UK Biobank data. The researcher of the winning abstract (as decided by a UK Biobank panel) will have the chance to present their work at the UK Biobank Scientific Conference.


UK Biobank Doctoral Student of the Year 2022: Thesis in Three Minutes

The UK Biobank Scientific Conference is attended by thousands of people and highlights the very best in scientific discovery through the use of data held in the UK Biobank research resource. We want to use this event to shine a light on the many young researchers putting the UK Biobank data through its paces to improve human health.

We are seeking video submissions from PhD students using the UK Biobank resource to showcase the talented, imaginative study designs using the UK Biobank biomedical database. These videos will be made available on the UK Biobank social channels and by the thousands of international researchers from industry and academia that attend the UK Biobank Scientific Conference every year. 10 submissions will be selected and the winning submission will receive £300 Amazon vouchers to support their studies.
