The Barancik Prize for Innovation in Multiple Sclerosis Research recognizes an exceptional scientist or a team of scientists whose work in MS research has demonstrated outstanding innovation and originality.
This annual prize, made possible by the generosity of the Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation, is $100,000 to be used at the discretion of the recipient.
The prize is administered by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. A selection committee comprised of leaders in science, medicine, and MS advocacy will review nominees. The committee will evaluate:
- Exceptional innovation and originality in scientific research relevant to MS
- Impact and potential of the research to lead to pathways for the treatment and cure for MS
- Scientific accomplishments that merit recognition as a future leader in MS research
The selected nominee will be presented with the prize and give a lecture at the ACTRIMS Forum in early March of the following year.
Deadline for nominations is July 31, 2018.
