Young Investigator Contest

If you are a PhD student or a Post-doctoral researcher, don’t miss the opportunity to participate in the Young Investigator Contest!

Three contestants will be selected and have the opportunity to present their work at Neurizons 2020. Each 20-minute presentation will be followed by a 10-minute question session. A panel of 3-4 scientists (attending as speakers) will rate the talks, and the best presenter wins a prize.


The three selected contestants will be reimbursed for their travel and  accommodation expenses, as it pertains to the conference.

Last year’s winner, Thomas Chartier from EMBL, Heidelberg, won a Coolpix W100 Nikon camera. This year’s prize is once again sponsored by Nikon. 

Submit an abstract and indicate your interest for the Young Investigator Contest during registration. If you are interested in a poster presentation as well, you may use the same abstract. Would rather not have a poster? Worry not, because poster presentation is not required to enter the contest.
