Eppendorf and the “Science” journal are now accepting applications for the 2016 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology. This annual international research prize of US$25,000 is awarded to young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiology research based on methods of molecular and cell biology. Researchers who are not older than 35 years are invited to apply by June 15, 2016. The winner and finalists are selected by a committee of independent scientists, chaired by Science’s Senior Editor, Dr. Peter Stern.
In 2015, Japanese scientist Shigeki Watanabe, Ph.D. from John Hopkins University (Baltimore, USA), has won the prestigious international award. He has developed two novel techniques in electron microscopy that allow for the visualization of protein and membrane dynamics at synapses with millisecond temporal resolution.
