Developmental Neuroscience Award Open for Nominations

The Joseph Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience is presented by the Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS) to recognise and reward outstanding research by early- and mid-career researchers who have already made remarkable contributions to the field of developmental neuroscience research and are expected to achieve further outcomes in the future.

The focus of the award is on developmental neuroscience at the tissue and cellular level, ranging in scope from phenomena during foetal or developmental stages through to adult neurogenesis and its biological significance and changes resulting from ageing and diseases. Assessment of the award is based on an article of which the applicant is a corresponding author published within five years of the application deadline, and two other articles of which the applicant is a first or corresponding author.

Eligible applicants/nominees are researchers from anywhere in the world who received their doctoral degree within the past 20 years. Applicants are not required to be members of the Japan Neuroscience Society.

The award winner will receive a prize of US$10,000 and a diploma of merit and will be invited to present an award lecture at the 2021 Japan Neuroscience Society Annual Meeting in Kobe, Japan, in July 2021. JNS will provide an economy-class ticket and an accommodation fee to travel to Japan to attend the award ceremony.

Applications should be submitted via the JNS website by the deadline of 31 January 2021.
