Call For Entries: Apply Now for the AAN Journalism Fellowship Award

06.10.2009
Application Deadline: January 8, 2010
Winners to Attend 2010 AAN Annual Meeting in Toronto

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.

Eligibility:

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.

Judging Criteria:

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:

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
