If you do not have an account already you will be asked to create one on the next step.
Following the untimely death of William L. Young, MD, in 2013, the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care agreed to establish an eponymous research award to honor his career and life, particularly his outstanding accomplishments as a clinical and laboratory neuroscientist.
Dr. Young was a longstanding SNACC member, President of the Society from 1996-1997 and a colleague and friend of many of its members. He was appropriately viewed as one of the most productive researchers, influential mentors, and memorable personalities in neuroanesthesiology’s history.
The William L. Young Neuroscience Research Award is presented annually to offer support to academic physicians and/or scientists who conduct either clinical or laboratory-based research related to neuroscience in anesthesiology and critical care.
Applying for the William L. Young Neuroscience Research Award
The William L. Young Neuroscience Research Award provides $10,000 to support research related to the SNACC mission. SNACC members, who are fellows or junior faculty (within six years of initial faculty appointment/first independent position after completion of specialty training) at the time of application are eligible. Basic, translational, clinical, or data science projects are all welcome.
Thank you for your interest in the William L. Young Neuroscience Award!
