ECNP Award for Negative Results in Clinical Neuroscience

2021 Best Negative Data Prize in Clinical Neuroscience

Application in now open!

The ECNP Negative Results Prize in Clinical Neuroscience recognises those who have made exceptional contributions to CNS treatment development by publishing clinical research with negative findings.

Extending its previous sponsorship of the Best Negative Data Prize for results in preclinical neuroscience, as of 2021 the U.S.-based non-profit research organisation Cohen Veterans Bioscience (CVB) will provide a cash prize of US$ 10,000 to accompany the award.

Corresponding authors may submit their papers directly via CVB portal on or before 30 April 2021. The review committee will select and inform the winner by 1 August.

The presentation of the prize will take place at the 34th ECNP Congress Hybrid, 2-5 October 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal, where the winner will be invited to present a talk about his or her negative data results paper.
