Award Program

The Innovators in Science Award recognizes a promising Early Career Scientist and an outstanding Senior Scientist’s contributions to science in the areas of Neuroscience, Gastroenterology, Regenerative Medicine, and Oncology, and is intended to support their commitment to innovative research. The 2017 Award is one of the largest industry sponsored global prizes given to an individual scientist in the area of Neuroscience.

In the Award’s inaugural year, 114 academic, government, and non-profit institutions from across 28 countries named their most promising Early Career and Senior Scientists in Neuroscience. Nominations were also accepted from the Award's own Scientific Advisory Council, composed of renowned science and technology leaders. From the 170 nominations received, one Winner in each category will be selected and receive $200,000 to support their commitment to innovative research.

The panel of Judges is comprised of many of the world’s most distinguished scientists and, together with the members of the Scientific Advisory Council, includes 2 Nobel Laureates, 2 Lasker Award Winners, 2 National Medal of Science recipients, and several members of the National Academy of Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Japan Academy, and Royal Society. The Winners will be announced in October 2017 and honored at a Ceremony dinner in New York City.
