The Chica and Heinz Schaller Foundation Award in Translational Neuroscience 2024
In collaboration with the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) the Chica and Heinz Schaller Foundation has launched “The Chica and Heinz Schaller Foundation Award in Translational Neuroscience”.
This award will recognise significant achievements by an individual in translational science, and in particular those where fundamental and conceptual understanding of the nervous system have been brought to support clinically relevant progress.
Alternatively, scientists that have made sustained and significant steps in the translation of neuroscience into other scientific areas and domains and vice versa may likewise be recognised.
This is a personal prize of EUR 50,000 and the winner is required to give a lecture at the FENS Forum 2024.
PD Dr. med. Michael Breckwoldt, Ph.D. has been awarded the 2022 Chica and Heinz Schaller Research Award
