You are welcome to submit more than one nomination; however, the Gold Medal Award will be presented to one individual or a team of two individuals. Teams or groups of more than two are not eligible for nomination. Candidates should be scientists, not philanthropists. Candidate nominations from prior years are not considered in subsequent years; therefore, if you would like to nominate a past candidate you must resubmit a nomination for consideration for the 2012 Gold Medal Award.
