Robin McKie of the Observer is in the running for stories on controversial calls to extend embryo research, gene editing and sea otters. The Guardian’s Denis Campbell has been shortlisted for a trilogy of articles on the funding crisis facing the NHS.

And Clive Cookson from the Financial Times is in the running with science stories covering the impact of Brexit, asteroids and the science of making money.
