The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation names winners of Klerman and Freedman Prizes
Date:7/28/2014

NEW YORK CITY (July 28, 2014)The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation today announced the winners of its annual Klerman and Freedman Prizes, recognizing exceptional clinical and basic research by young scientists who have been supported by NARSAD Young Investigator Grants. The grants enable early career scientists to pursue innovative ideas in neurobiological and psychosocial research for the prevention, early detection, treatment, and cure of mental illnesses that affect one in four people.

Six young scientistswinners of the Klerman and Freedman Prizes along with two honorable mentions in each categorywere selected by the Foundation's 146-member Scientific Council, comprised of the nation's leading psychiatrists and neuroscientists, including two Nobel Prize winners; four former directors of the NIMH; 13 members of the National Academy of Sciences; 20 chairs of Psychiatry and Neuroscience Departments at leading medical institutions; and 45 members of the Institute of Medicine.

According to Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., the Foundation's President and CEO, the prizes pay tribute to Dr. Gerald L. Klerman and Dr. Daniel X. Freedman, whose legacies as researchers, teachers, physicians and administrators have indelibly influenced neuropsychiatry.

"We are proud to honor these young scientists with the Klerman and Freedman Prizes for cutting-edge research supported by NARSAD Young Investigator Grants, the Foundation's hallmark program that enables young scientists with innovative ideas to garner pilot data and go on to receive further funding," says Dr. Borenstein, noting that recipients of NARSAD Young Investigator Grants receive an average of 11-19 times the original grant amount in subsequent funding. "This early recognition of their work by the Foundation's Scientific Council often serves as a precursor to further accomplishments and awards, and their establishment as independent investigators."
