Nominations should be made following discussion with the candidate and be accompanied by a one page outline proposal for a Review article (see Guidelines for that format) that fulfils the current scope of Experimental Physiology and reports novel insights into homeostatic and adaptive responses in health and pathophysiological mechanisms in disease. An up-to-date copy of the candidate's CV should also be sent.

The entrant must be the corresponding and first or last author of the proposed Review article. Details of any co-authors should be given on the outline proposal. The nominating senior investigator should submit a brief letter in support of their nominee.

A sub-committee of the EP Editorial Board will judge the submissions and select the winner. The 2016 winner will be notified by the end of November 2016 and required to submit a Review article as senior and correspondning author by the end of March 2017 which will be subject to our usual external peer review process.
