Best Negative Data Prize in Clinical Neuroscience

The Best Negative Data 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.

Extending its previous sponsorship of the Best Negative Data Prize for results in Pre-Clinical Neuroscience, as of 2023 the U.S.-based non-profit research organisation Cohen Veterans Bioscience (CVB) provides a cash prize of USD 10,000 to accompany the award.
