Atrium du centre Broca Nouvelle-Aquitaine

About the prize

Bordeaux Neurocampus launches its 1st call to recognize outstanding achievements in Neuroscience of an early career female researcher in our community.

Marian Diamond

Marian Diamond (1926-2017) was an American pioneer in anatomical neuroscience who provided the first scientific evidence for anatomical neuroplasticity in the early 1960s. Later, her work on Einstein’s brain in the 1980s gave new impetus to the study of neuron-glia interactions.

Initiated by the Neurocampus Parity Committee (NPC), the Marian Diamond Prize aims to raise the profile of female neuroscientists at a crucial stage in their careers, the postdoctoral period, when they face many barriers to reach academic positions.

The winner will receive a cash prize of €1000, and will be invited to present her research to the whole community on May 16th 2024 at the Bordeaux Neurocampus Day.
