Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology

Eppendorf & Science  神经生物学奖

  We have good news for our visiting scholars and post-docs who have worked in the research field of Neurobiology, your research could help you win US$25000 (177612rmb)! Young scholars’ motivation for pursuing further education and research opportunities have not gone unseen. All your hard work could help you win a great prize!


What is the goal of this prize?


  The aim of this prize is to acknowledge how neurobiology represents an increasingly active and important role in the advancement of our understanding of the functioning of the nervous system and the brain. This international prize was established in 2002, in order to encourage promising young neurobiologists to continue working on their research, by providing financial support in the early stages of their careers. Since then, every year the prize is awarded to the young scientist who developed the most outstanding neurobiological research.


About the Sponsors


  1)      Eppendorf is a German company founded in 1945 which produces and sells products and services for laboratories around the world. Their products are used in both academic and industrial research laboratories, in the pharmaceutical, bio-tech, chemical and food industries.


  2)      “Science”is a peer-reviewed academic journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and it is one of the world's top academic journals. Its first publication was released in 1880. The major focus of this journal is to publish original scientific research and research reviews, but “Science” also publishes science-related news, opinions on science policy and other articles related to the wide implications of science and technology. Unlike most scientific journals which focus on a specific field, “Science” covers a full range of scientific disciplines.


About the Prize


  How to apply and what are the requirements? 如何申请以及申请有哪些要求?

  ·         You will need to submit a 1000-word entrance essay in which you describe your contributions to neurobiological research based on methods of molecular and cell biology, and fill out an application form.


  ·         You must have performed or directed the work described in the essay.


  ·         The research must have been performed during the previous 3 years.


  ·         You must be a neurobiologist with an advanced degree received in the last 10 years.


  ·         Applicants must not be older than 35 years of age.


  You can learn more at: www.eppendorf.com/prize


  When is the entry deadline? You can apply by June 15th, 2020.


  How is the selection process? 选拔流程

  ·         The winner and the finalists are selected by a committee of prominent international researchers in the field of neurobiology, and it is chaired by the Senior Editor of “Science”, Dr. Peter Stern. Most of the judges are appointed based on nominations from the Society for Neuroscience.

  获奖者和入围者由神经生物学领域的著名国际研究人员组成的委员会选出,该委员会由《Science》高级编辑彼得·斯特恩博士(Dr. Peter Stern)担任主席。大多数评委都是由神经科学学会提名任命的。

  ·         The top 10 percent of the essays are forwarded to the judging panel.


  ·         The essays are rated in two areas: scientific quality & significance, and clarity & style of the writing.


  What does the prize include? 奖项包括哪些内容?

  ·         US$25000.


  ·         Your research essay will be published on the “Science”journal.


  ·         Full support to attend the Prize Ceremony, held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, in the USA.


  ·         A 10-year “AAAS” membership and an online subscription to “Science”.


  ·         Complimentary research products worth US$1,000 from Eppendorf.


  ·         An invitation to visit Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany.


  If you don’t win but your work makes it to the finals, keep in mind that up to 3 finalists are honored too!


Previous winners


  ·         2019: Ph.D. Lauren Orefice–Massachusetts General Hospital & Harvard Medical School, for her work on the causes and potential therapies for autism spectrum disorders. Dr. Orefice’s work studies the development and function of somatosensory circuits and the ways in which somatosensation is altered in developmental disorders.

  2019:Lauren Orefice博士—马萨诸塞州总医院和哈佛医学院,从事自闭症谱系障碍的病因和潜在治疗方面的工作。Orefice博士的工作是研究体感回路的发育和功能,以及在发育障碍中体感改变的方式。

  ·         2018: Ph.D. Johannes Kohl–Harvard University, for his work on Functional Circuit Architecture underlying Parental Behavior. Dr. Kohl’s work showed that a genetically defined population of neurons deep in the brain coordinates the motor, motivational, hormonal and social aspects of parenting.

  2018年:Johannes Kohl博士—哈佛大学,其研究基于父母行为的功能通路架构。Kohl博士的研究表明,大脑深处神经元群的基因决定了协调养育子女的运动、动机、荷尔蒙和社交。

  ·         2017: Ph.D. Flavio Donato – Kavli Institute Norwegian University of Science and Technology, for his work on Stellate cells and how they drive maturation of the entorhinal-hippocampal circuit. Dr. Donato’s work showed that a specific population of neurons located deep within the brain provides the initial activity-dependent signal to kick off the sequential maturation of the network that provides us with a sense of where we are. Therese cells are also preferentially targeted by the initial pathological processes of Alzheimer's disease.

  2017年:Flavio Donato博士—挪威科技大学弗Kavli研究所,他的研究方向是星状细胞及其如何促进内嗅海马回路的成熟。Donato博士的研究表明,位于大脑深处的特定神经元群提供了初始的活动依赖信号,以启动神经网络的有序成熟,这为我们提供了一种感知。Therese细胞也是阿尔茨海默病初始病理过程中首选的靶向细胞。

  ·         2006: Ph.D. Doris Tsao – University of Bremen, Germany, for her work on the dedicated cortical system for processing faces in macaques. Dr. Tsao’s work exploresmonkey fMRI as a way to chart unexplored regions of the brain, she work with the imaging of macaques’ brain regions involved in depth and face perception.Her laboratory uses a combination of electrophysiology, imaging, psychophysics, and anatomical techniques.

  2006年:Doris Tsao博士—德国不莱梅大学,她致力于在专用皮质系统中处理猴子面部感知的研究。Tsao博士的工作是探索猴子的核磁共振(fMRI)作为绘制大脑未探索区域的一种方法,研究猕猴大脑深度和面部感知区域的成像。她的实验室结合了电生理学、影像学、心理物理学和解剖学技术。

  If you have developed research on Neurobiology during your time as a Visiting Scholar or Post-doc, consider applying for this award. Or if you know colleagues in this field, encourage them to apply. Since 2002, three of the researches who have received this award were Chinese scholars. Continue learning and submerging yourself into your research, we are here to help you achieve your dreams. Good luck on your next career move!
