Apply today for the 2021 Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation!

Apply today for this unique prize for research in neuromodulation.The Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation is awarded for innovative research that modulates neural activity through physical (electrical, magnetic, optical) stimulation of targeted sites in the nervous system with implications for translational medicine. Established in 2016, the prize is awarded annually for outstanding research as described in a 1,500 word essay based on research performed in the past three years.

The winner  is awarded US$25,000 and publication of his or her essay in the journal Science. The Grand Prize essay and that of the Runner-up are also published on Science Online.The award is announced and presented at a ceremony usually in September each year. PINS will provide financial support to help enable the grand prize winner to attend the ceremony.



2020 Science and PINS Prize for Neuromodulation winners



Viviana Gradinaru

Viviana Gradinaru received her B.S. from the California Institute of Technology (CalTech) and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Stanford Medical School. After a year in industry, Gradinaru started her lab in the Divison of Biology and Biological Engineering at Caltech in 2012 where she is now a Professor of Neuroscience and Biological Engineering. Gradinaru’s research group specializes in developing neuroscience tools and methods, including engineering of microbial opsins and viral vectors with optimized brain tropism with systemic delivery. Her research uses mouse models of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders combined with electrophysiology and optogenetics to understand the cellular basis of dysfunction with the goal of developing novel strategies for intervention.  Read her prize winning research here.



Guosong Hong

Guosong Hong received his undergraduate degree from Peking University and a Ph.D. from Stanford University. After completing his postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University, Guosong started his lab in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University in 2018. His research aims to develop new materials-enabled neurotechnologies to interrogate and manipulate the brain with high spatiotemporal resolution, minimal invasiveness, and targeted neural specificity.  Read his prize winning research here.
