This international prize, established in 2002, encourages the work of promising young neurobiologists by providing support in the early stages of their careers. It is awarded annually for the most outstanding neurobiological research by a young scientist, as described in a 1,000-word essay based on research performed during the past three years.

The winner will receive US$25,000 and publication of his or her essay in Science. The essays of up to three finalists will also be published on Science Online.

Researchers who are 35 or younger are invited to apply by 15 June. The prizewinner will be selected by a committee of independent experts in the field, chaired by Science’s senior editor, Peter Stern.

The 2010 prize was won by Christopher Gregg, Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University for his research on maternal and paternal gene expression in the brain.
