Negative Results Prize in Clinical Neuroscience

The Negative Results Prize in Clinical Neuroscience recognises those who have made exceptional contributions to CNS treatment science by publishing clinical research with negative findings. Winners are selected especially on the basis of the impact of their findings in helping the field to optimise its resource and investment allocation and, in doing so, advance long-term treatment development.
