The BNA recognises, promotes and supports neuroscientific excellence via a number of prize schemes. Read below for full details and past prize winners.
*NEW* Sieratzki UK-Israel Prize for Advances in Neuroscience
We are excited to announce the launch of this new prize for post graduate and early career neuroscientists working in the UK and in Israel.
The British Neuroscience Association (BNA) and the Israel Society for Neuroscience (ISFN) have partnered to create a prestigious Prize for Advances in Neuroscience which will encourage outstanding young scientists and forge international research collaboration.
The Prize is awarded to two UK and two Israeli scientists in alternate academicyears and in two categories:
The Prize will be launched at the 2017 Meeting of the ISFN which will be held on 10 – 12 December 2017 in Eilat. Exceptionally, on this occasion of the launch, Prizes will be given to both UK and Israeli applicants at the same meeting.
In future years, the Prize will be given to UK winners at the ISFN meeting (next in December 2018 in Eilat) and to Israeli winners at the bi-annual BNA Festival (next in April 2019 in Dublin).
The Prize is sponsored by the Sieratzki Family.
In addition to this, awardees will be given a bursary of USD $1,250 to support one week’s travel in either the UK or Israel, and give a presentation at the country’s national neuroscience society meeting.
† Where the completion date of PhD means the date indicated in the PhD letter of approval (Israel) or the date of a successful PhD viva voce (UK).
