OHSU and the OHSU Foundation are pleased to announce the third annual Festival of Lights Award. This is an award to honor an OHSU neuroscientist for research productivity and innovation. It was endowed by long-time supporter of the Neurological Sciences Institute, Mr. Irving Lieberman. The award is a $3,000 prize and certificate.
Self nominations or nominations by others are welcome. The nominee must be a neuroscientist at OHSU – this includes faculty, research associates and postdoctoral fellows. Where one feels that the productivity or innovation was due to a team effort, a nomination of a scientist team is permitted.
To Apply: Submit no more than a one page description (12pt. font, 1 inch. margins) of work done that is highly innovative and/or demonstrates particularly high productivity. If more than one scientist contributed to the work, include a description of the efforts of team members toward the final product. Submit a paper or other scholarly work in press or published between August 2008 and July 2009 as a supporting document if available. All materials should be in a single pdf document and emailed to Jeri Janowsky: email@example.com.
Deadline: Friday August 14, 2009 by 5:00 pm
Submissions will be reviewed by a committee composed of OHSU scientists (the 2009 review committee to be determined). The award will be presented at the Oregon Brain Institute Quarterly Forum on Monday October 5, 2009 at 5:00 pm.
