The Science & PINS Prize is awarded for innovative research that modulates neural activity through physical (electrical, magnetic, optical) stimulation of targeted sites in the nervous system with implications for translational medicine. Established in 2016, the prize is administered by Science and Science Translational Medicine and awarded annually for outstanding research as described in a 1,500 word essay based on research performed in the past three years.

The winner of the Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation is awarded US$25,000 and publication of his or her essay in Science. The Grand Prize essay and that of the Runner-up are also published on Science Online. The award is announced and presented at a ceremony usually in September each year. PINS will provide financial support to help enable the grand prize winner to attend the ceremony.

* Chemical stimulation is not one of the categories being evaluated for 2019; there was an erroneous print advertisement in editions of Science in December 2018 and January 2019.  Please read the full details on judging criteria and eligibility requirements.


Deadline for submissions: March 15, 2019
