Nominations Open for Joseph Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience

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 achievements and are expected to achieve further outcomes in the same field in the future.

The focus of the award, which includes a prize of US$10,000 and a diploma of merit, is on developmental neuroscience at the tissue and cellular level, ranging from phenomena during foetal or developmental stages through to adult neurogenesis and its biological significance and changes resulting from ageing and diseases.

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

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.

Applications/nominations may be submitted via the Japan Neuroscience Society website from 1 November 2019. Completed applications/nominations should be completed by the deadline of 31 January 2020.

Applicants will be notified of the selection results by the end of March 2020. If the award recipient is an overseas researcher, JNS will provide an economy-class ticket and an accommodation fee to travel to Japan to attend the award ceremony.
