2021 Joseph Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience

Dear SANS members,

The Japan Neuroscience Society is now accepting nominations for the 2021 Joseph Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience. The Award was established with a fund donated to the Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS) by Dr. Shirley A. Bayer, a widow and long-term collaborator of late Dr. Joseph Altman. Dr. Joseph Altman, who discovered neurogenesis in the adult mammalian brain, received the International Prize for Biology from His Majesty the Emperor of Japan. (If you are interested in his work then please look at https://doi.org/10.1002/cne.24058).

The Award is to recognize up-and-coming researchers who have made remarkable achievements in the field of developmental neuroscience. Applications will be accepted from all over the world. Further details can be found at https://www.jnss.org/en/joseph-altman-award.
