NINDS invites nominations of outstanding mentors who are 5 to 12 years from the start of their first tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions.  Although these nominees will not have an extensive track record of mentorship, they will have, at the earliest stage of their independent research careers, demonstrated a dedication to helping trainees towards their goal of becoming exceptional, successful, independent scientists.


To be eligible for this award, mentors must be in a tenure-track or equivalent faculty position and hold an active NINDS R01, R35, or P01 with at least one year left on their grant at the time of award.

Nominations for the NINDS Landis Mentor Award will be accepted ONLY from current and former mentees of the nominated individual. See a detailed description of this award.

All fields are required.
