2019 Derek Denny-Brown Young Neurological Scholar Award Nomination Form

2019 Nomination Form

DEADLINE: Friday, March 29, 2019

Purpose

The Derek Denny-Brown Young Neurological Scholar Award, ANA’s highest and most prestigious award, recognizes early- to mid-career neurologists and neuroscientists. This award honors those neurologists and neuroscientists in the first 10 years of their career at the assistant/associate faculty (equivalent) level who have made outstanding basic and clinical scientific advances toward the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of neurological diseases.

History

This award was originally given to a newly elected member of the Association who had achieved significant stature in neurological research and who planned to continue making major contributions to the field of neurology. In 2011, this award was divided into two parts: basic science and clinical science. In 2014 a taskforce was established to broaden the criteria of this award to be more inclusive of the association’s growing membership base. Specifically, the award is now designed to recognize significant contributions by ANA members working in neurology and neuroscience in their first 10 years at the assistant/associate faculty (equivalent) level.

The Membership, Honorary and Awards Committee can make up to a total of three (3) awards in the following three areas:

  • Physician Scientist - Basic
