Past Klerman & Freedman Prizewinners

Past Klerman & Freedman Prizewinners

The Annual Klerman and Freedman Prizes recognize exceptional clinical and basic research conducted by NARSAD Young Investigator Grantees. The NARSAD Young Investigator Grant program is the hallmark program of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, enabling aspiring young scientists with innovative ideas to garner pilot data and generate “proof of concept” for their work. These two prizes are awarded in New York City every July.
