FENS is delighted to announce a new award supported by the Chica and Heinz Schaller Foundation: “The Chica and Heinz Schaller Foundation Award in Translational Neuroscience”.
This award will recognise significant achievements by an individual in translational science, and in particular those where fundamental and conceptual understanding of the nervous system have been brought to support clinically relevant progress.
Alternatively, scientists that have made sustained and significant steps in the translation of neuroscience into other scientific areas and domains and vice versa may likewise be recognised.
This is a personal prize of EUR 50,000 and the winner is required to give a lecture at the FENS Forum.
The call for nominations for the 2022 award is now open and will close on 30 August.
