Winners for the 22nd Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award Selected!

We are pleased to announce the winners for the 22nd Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award. This year’s award ceremony will be held during the 45th Annual Meeting of the Japan Neuroscience Society (NEURO2022).
The Japan Neuroscience Society Young Investigator Award Ceremony
Date and Time: July 1st, 2022, 2:00 p.m.
Venue: Okinawa Convention Center Theater Building
All award winners are young researchers who are expected to play a leading role in the field of neuroscience and the Japan Neuroscience Society. We hope many Society members will attend the award ceremony.
Please note that the selection of this award is not based on individual papers, but rather on the applicant's research achievements, research concept and potential for development, and history of activities in the Society (including presentations at conferences). We encourage young researchers in a wide range of fields, without being biased toward fields that tend to produce a large number of papers. We look forward to receiving applications from many young researchers (in principle, within 10 years of receiving their degrees) in the next fiscal year. The Society particularly encourages applications from female researchers.
