"Rising Star Award" in Neurodegenerative Research - Call for Submissions


 

The Mahoney Institute for Neurosciences (MINS) at the Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania is pleased to announce an international call for submissions for its annual Rising Star Award in neuroscience research. To highlight the "Year of Neurodegenerative Research" on Penn's campus, the award honors a young researcher for outstanding contributions to neurodegenerative research with a USD 10,000 personal honorarium at the MINS 35th Annual Retreat and Symposium on April 3, 2019.

"Neurodegenerative disorders are major health problems for the elderly, and there are currently no treatments for any of these diseases," said Virginia Lee, PhD, director of Penn's Center for Neurodegenerative Disease and a MINS faculty member. "I am proud that there is a large research community at Penn, including MINS, at the forefront of research elucidating the etiology and pathogenesis of these devastating disorders. We look forward to honoring and facilitating a young researcher to enhance our understanding of age-related neurodegeneration and to advance future therapies."

In addition, the 2019 award recipient will present a research seminar at the symposium and, before the seminar, a separate introductory lecture on neurodegeneration. Also at the symposium, Prof. Pietro De Camilli, Yale School of Medicine, will give the Sprague Lecture, and Prof. Beth Stevens, Harvard Medical School, will give the Adler Lecture.

Researchers who received their first advanced degree, such as the PhD, in 2005 or more recently are invited to submit a one-page description of their contributions to neurodegenerative research, full curricula vitae, and names of three references in a single PDF file by December 1, 2018, to MINSRisingStarAward@lists.upenn.edu. More information can be found at www.med.upenn.edu/ins.
