The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation will celebrate 25 years of Empowering Research for Productive Lives by honoring eight extraordinary scientists at its Annual National Awards Dinner to be held at the Pierre Hotel in New York City on October 26.
“Each year, the Foundation recognizes outstanding leadership and contributions to mental health research with a number of annual prizes. Together these prizes are known as the Outstanding Achievement Prizes and are recognized by scientists as among the most prestigious honors possible in the field,” said Benita Shobe, Foundation President and CEO. Selected through a peer-review process of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation Scientific Council, a volunteer group of 138 pre-eminent mental health researchers, the prizes often mark the culmination of career achievements in furthering the understanding and treatment of mental illness.
In addition to the awards for scientists, the Foundation will give Productive Lives Awards to two individuals who have risen to the top of their respective professions and have devoted their energy and formidable talents to helping those living with mental illness live productive lives.
