Non-ANS Awards

Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience

The JNS is now announcing the call for nominations for the 2019 Joseph Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience, and will accept applications from all over the world.

The Award was established to commemorate the outstanding achievements in developmental neuroscience of the late Professor Joseph Altman, who discovered the adult neurogenesis in the cerebral cortex. Dr. Shirley A. Bayer, Dr. Altman’s widow and long-term collaborator, offered to make a donation to the JNS to fund the award to honor the young and promising scientists in the field of developmental neuroscience. Accordingly, the Award recognizes up-and-coming researchers who have made remarkable achievements in this field.

Application submission site opens on November 1st, 2018
Application deadline is on January 31st, 2019
