Dear Researcher,

The annual Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology is an international award which honors young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiological research based on methods of molecular and cell biology. The winner and finalists are selected by a committee of independent scientists, chaired by Science’s Senior Editor, Dr. Peter Stern. Researchers who are not older than 35 years are invited to apply.

The winner receives

  • Prize money of US$25,000
  • Publication in Science of an essay by the winner about his/her research
  • Full support to attend the Prize Ceremony held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in the USA
  • An invitation to visit Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany
  • Up to three finalists are honored, too!


Application deadline: June 15, 2017

Congratulations to Gilad Evrony on winning the 2016 Eppendorf & Science Prize for his work on developing technologies to sequence and analyze the genomes of single cells from the human brain. Dr. Evrony’s research has revealed a diversity of mutations in neuronal genomes indicating that every neuron in the brain carries a unique fingerprint of somatic mutations. Such mutations can cause focal brain malformations and may have a role in other unsolved neurologic diseases. The technology also allows, for the first time, reconstruction of developmental lineage trees in the human brain to study how cells proliferate and migrate to build the brain.

It’s easy to apply!
