All the applications were evaluated by Evaluation Committee members, who ranked the applicants according to their CV and scholarly achievements, their research, the significance of the conference, and their career aspirations. On behalf of the Editor-in-Chief of Brain Sciences, Prof. Dr. Stephen D. Meriney, we are pleased to announce the winners of the Brain Sciences 2019 Travel Awards:
Stephanie Schultz, from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis (United States). Her current research focuses on implementing emerging biomarkers, including first- and second-generation tau PET ligands and blood-based neurodegeneration markers, to study the relationship between lifestyle factors and brain aging and Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Katalin Bartus, from King’s College London (UK). Her current research centers on spontaneous repair processes and determining their underlying molecular mechanisms to develop new treatment strategies for spinal cord injury.
We congratulate them on their excellent work and would further like to thank all applicants for their interesting and high-quality contributions. We also wish to thank the Evaluation Committee members for their evaluation of the candidates.
