The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) is seeking journalists who exemplify excellence in medical, health and science reporting to apply for the 13th annual AAN Journalism Fellowship Award.
The AAN recognizes the important contributions made by members of the news media who help raise the public’s awareness of neurologic disorders through print, broadcast and online news stories regarding advancements in neurologic research.
The winner will receive special recognition, airfare and hotel with a five-night maximum stay to attend the 2010 AAN Annual Meeting in Toronto.
The AAN Annual Meeting will take place April 10 – 17, 2010, in Toronto, Canada, and provides an in-depth look at the latest advances in research and treatment options for neurologic disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, autism, Parkinson disease, epilepsy, migraine, multiple sclerosis and stroke. More than 10,000 neurologists are expected to attend and more than 2,000 abstracts of scientific research will be presented.
How to Apply:
Applicants should submit the following:
1.) Written expression of interest (no more than 500 words)
2.) A resume (include contact information)
3.) Three print, broadcast or online news clips on a neurology-related topic or any medical/science topic that covers advances in research, treatment, or care of neurologic conditions. Materials may be part of a series. Audio or broadcast clips must have a total running time of less than 30 minutes. Materials or stories included in any AAN publications are prohibited.
4.) A nominating letter from a senior editor, news director or producer.
There is no submission fee.
Any reporter, writer, producer, or editor from a recognized print, broadcast, or online news publication is eligible to apply for the AAN Journalism Fellowship Award. Members of the AAN who can provide these credentials are also eligible to apply. However, members of the AAN currently serving in official leadership positions are exempt. Materials must be published or broadcast between January 1, 2009, and December 31, 2009. Past recipients of the AAN Journalism Fellowship Award are not eligible to apply.
Judges may select up to one award recipient. Entries will be judged on the basis of originality, aptitude, accuracy, and significance to the area of neurology. Judges will also consider the journalist’s background, interest, and overall career contributions to neurology-related topics.Applications may be sent through the mail or email using the following information:
The American Academy of Neurology, an association of more than 21,000 neurologists and neuroscience professionals, is dedicated to improving patient care through education and research. A neurologist is a doctor with specialized training in diagnosing, treating and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system such as stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
