Brain Sciences Awards
Travel Awards 2018
An exciting new initiative launched this year by Brain Sciences is the establishment of two Travel Awards to assist a Junior Researcher and a PhD student to attend a relevant conference. Over 56 eligible applications, from Europe, USA, Canada and Australia, were evaluated by an international panel of experts, who ranked the applicants according to their CV and scholarly achievements, their research, the significance of the conference, and their career aspirations. Selecting the award winners from the two highly competitive fields was very difficult, and so it is a great pleasure for me to announce the worthy winners of the inaugural Brain Sciences Travel Awards:
• The Junior Research Award winner is Dr Anna-Sophia Wahl of the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich (Switzerland), who will attend the the Society for Neuroscience (SFN) Annual Meeting in Washington, USA in November 2017.
• The PhD Award winner is Simon Morand-Beaulieu of the University of Montreal (Canada), who will attend the Cognitive Neuroscience Society 2018 Annual Meeting in Boston, USA in March 2018.
