The winner gets a price money of $25000
Singapore: Eppendorf and the journal Science are now accepting applications for the 2015 'Eppendorf and Science Prize for Neurobiology'. This annual international research prize of $25000 is awarded to young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiology research based on methods of molecular and cell biology.
Researchers who are 35 years of age or younger are invited to apply by June 15, 2015. The winner and finalists are selected by a committee of independent scientists, chaired by Science's Senior Editor, Dr Peter Stern.
The 2014 prize was won by the US scientist Dr Eiman Azim, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Columbia University in New York. Dr Azim's work offers fundamental new insights into the neural mechanisms that enable skilled limb movements to be both smooth and precise.
