Innovative news/featured project - The Delaware Consortium for Neuroscience Initiative
Call for Nominations: Science Educator Award
The Delaware Consortium for Brain Disease and Translational Neuroscience is an initiative that resulted from the collaborations of an alliance formed by key members of the neuroscience community (Delaware State University, University of Delaware, A.I. du Pont Children’s Hospital, and the Christiana Care Hospital system, in partnership with the DCSfN). The goal is to capitalize on the strengths found within Delaware ’s network of researchers (basic scientists, and clinicians), and to serve as a driving force in the actualization of an interdisciplinary environment for brain and neuroscience research. Presently under construction is a statewide network in the field of neuroscience education and research training, through the implementation of DSU’s new Neuroscience PhD program in connection with U of D’s various neuroscience-related programs, A.I. duPont Children’s Hospital, and the Christiana Care Hospital system. If funded, another outcome of this initiative would be the availability of funding for innovative new interdisciplinary research collaborations that will hopefully improve the lives of thousands of Delawareans affected by brain disease and their families, as well as provide a state-of-the-art outfitted laboratory space, and the ability to attract top-notch research scientists to the First state. Voice your support for this initiative by writing to your local congressperson to vote in favor of its inclusion in the 2008 fiscal year budget.
The Science Educator Award is presented each year to an outstanding neuroscientist who has made significant contributions to educating the public about neuroscience. The award consists of a $5,000 honorarium, plaque, and money to cover travel expenses to the Society's annual meeting in Washington , DC . Nominations are due by June 6, 2008.
