About the Prize
The Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology acknowledges the increasing importance of this research in advancing our understanding of how the brain and nervous system function - a quest that seems destined for dramatic expansion in the coming decades.
Eppendorf and Science/AAAS established this international prize in 2002. The Prize is intended to encourage and support the work of promising young neurobiologists who are not older than 35 years. It is awarded annually to one young scientist for the most outstanding neurobiological research based on methods of molecular and cell biology conducted by him/her during the past three years, as described in a 1,000-word entrance essay.
In 2011 Eppendorf and Science/AAAS were proud to announce the 10th winner of the Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology - the portuguese scientist Dr. Tiago Branco. In acknowledgment of all past and present recipients of this award a special anniversary booklet was published.
