This annual award is extending into a higher quality event every year, increasing the scientific level and number of the submitted papers. The research papers are evaluated through an intense jury procedure by Award’s national and international Jury board to whom our special thanks goes.

Each year the prominent researches with outstanding help in solving problems in reproduction and stem cell fields, are announced, appreciated and rewarded. As comparing the researches in different fields is very difficult and finding the best researches with variations in methods, implements and results is almost impossible, from the eighth award the same prizes are distributed among winners in different fields of reproductive biomedicine and stem cell such as:

female infertility, epidemiology, ethics, andrology, embryology, reproductive imaging, reproductive genetics, stem cell biology and technology, regenerative medicine, and biotechnology. The submitted research articles are categorized according to nine scientific groups: female infertility, reproductive genetics, epidemiology, ethics, embryology, andrology, reproductive imaging, stem cell biology and technology and biotechnology. Each article is ranked according to its relevancy, impact factor, and an innovation score. After the articles are sorted, each scientific group selects their nominees and sends them to national and international referees for evaluation.

Each referee evaluates at most 5 research articles, related to his/her field of interest, qualitatively in Likert scale according to these norms:
• Relevancy to the award subjects
• Creativity and innovation
• Methodology and research design
• Problem solving
• Applicability on human

Evaluation of the articles by the juries has been discussed in the board of juries and their decisions have been approved by scientific board of the institute.
Finally, international and national winners are selected and invited to present their researches in Royan twin congress on Reproductive Biomedicine and Stem Cell Biology and Technology which is held almost in September every year and will receive their prizes in prize award ceremony
