The purpose of this international award is to encourage research in the neurosciences and to recognize outstanding, continuous commitment to research in the neurosciences by a neurological surgeon. The Society of Neurological Surgeons has established a committee composed of neurosurgeons and neuroscientists to evaluate candidates and select an annual awardee. Additional information can be found on the SNS website.
We invite you and your colleagues to submit nominations. In order to encourage a broad solicitation, the Society would appreciate dispersing this announcement to your colleagues and faculty. Please note that the goal of The Winn Prize is to recognize accomplished, but active investigators and not to honor individuals whose career, however distinguished, is emeritus. Previous Grass Prize awardees are ineligible.
Nominations for the Winn Prize must be accompanied by:
- A letter containing a short summary of the nominee’s significant scientific accomplishments and contributions.
- A current CV
- PDF’s of three to five papers, which the nominator and nominee feels represent their most significant, and substantial research contributions.
The Winn Prize nomination form will open in Fall/Winter 2023 for the 2024 Winn Prize.
