On April 19, 2016, Dr. Joseph Altman, who discovered neurogenesis in the adult mammalian brain and received the International Prize for Biology from His Majesty the Emperor of Japan, passed away. Dr. Shirley A. Bayer, Dr. Altman’s widow who conducted research with him for over 30 years, offered to make a donation to the Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS). Based on this, JNS established the Joseph Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience (hereinafter “the Award”).
Deadline Date: Applications must be received by January 31, 2020
Scope of the Award: Research in developmental neuroscience at the tissue and cellular levels. The scope of the Award is not limited to phenomena during fetal or developmental stages; it also includes adult neurogenesis and its biological significance and its changes resulting from aging and diseases. (As a general rule, applied studies are not included within the scope of the Award.)
