This Lectureship Scheme seeks to promote neurochemistry (defined broadly as molecular and cellular neurobiology) in those countries where the science is developing from a low base. This scheme recognises the synergy between the International Society for Neurochemistry (ISN) through its journal, the Journal of Neurochemistry (JNC), and its publishers Wiley Blackwell, and the broad goal of the advancement of the science of neurochemistry throughout the world for the public benefit.
Its intent is to support a Plenary Lecture at the annual meetings of societies of neurochemistry, neuroscience or neurobiology in such countries by an eminent, international neuroscientist on a topic related to molecular and cellular neurobiology.
The decision to award an ISN Wiley-Blackwell-JNC-International Lectureships will be made by ISN in consultation with Wiley Blackwell. There will be three ISN-Wiley Blackwell-JNC-International Lectureships per annum, each valued at US $5,000.
Funding will be provided on an 80:20 basis, with 80% of funds transferred to the society prior to the lecture and the remaining 20% provided on the receipt of a report (150 words approximately) plus photograph.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?
Eligible Applicants are a Society or Conference seeking to host a Speaker; NO individuals.
The person applying in the name of a Society or Conference has to have an official function in the Society (President, Secretary, Treasurer) or Conference (Chair of the Program or Organization Committee).
Applicants for the ISN Wiley-Blackwell-JNC-International Lectureships funding MUST be active members of the ISN. Only ISN Wiley-Blackwell-JNC-International Lectureships awardees who have renewed their membership for the current year are eligible to receive the financial support.
