The Klerman & Freedman Prizes are awarded annually to outstanding researchers who have received awards through the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation’s Young Investigator Grant program, which supports young scientists as they gather pilot data and “proof of concept” for their innovative clinical and basic research.
The Prizes are named for Gerald L. Klerman and Daniel X. Freedman, two neuropsychiatry pioneers who played seminal roles as researchers, teachers, physicians and administrators. The prizewinners are selected by committees of the Foundation’s Scientific Council, a volunteer group of 168 distinguished scientists in brain-related research disciplines, led by Dr. Herbert Pardes.
Celebrating our 30th Anniversary & honoring our Scientific Council.
This year, we'll celebrate 30 years of discoveries, the volunteer service of our Scientific Council and recognize Young Investigator Grantees for excellence and innovation in basic and clinical research.
