Congratulations to Ander Ramos-Murguialday, a Research Scientist at the Insitute of Medical Psychology and Behavioural Neurobiology at the University of Tubingen in Germany.  Dr Ramos-Murguialday is the winner of the 2nd WFNR Franz Gerstenbrand Award. 

To support Brain Awareness Week (16-22 March 2015), applications are now being sought for the 3rd WFNR Franz Gerstenbrand Award.  The Award is open to clinicians, researchers and allied health professionals to recognise and reward a neurorehabilitation project that has benefitted patients.

Named after Professor Franz Gerstenbrand in recognition of his continuous contribution to neurorehabilitation, the Award is open to WFNR members and non-members worldwide.  Special consideration will be given to applications from young (below the age of 30 years) clinicians and researchers.

Entries can come from any aspect of neurorehabilitation and examples include a patient or clinic management initiative, research project, best practice development or the use of a new technological development.

A panel of judges, chaired by the WFNR President, will review the entries.
