Joseph Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience
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) with the goal of instituting an award in developmental neuroscience. Accordingly, after discussion in a JNS special committee, the Board of Directors of JNS, at the Board meeting on July 19, 2016, decided that JNS would establish and administer the Altman Award in Developmental Neuroscience.
