Congratulations to Ander Ramos-Murguialday, a research scientist at the Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioral Neurobiology at the University of Tubingen in Germany, the winner of the 2nd WFNR Franz Gerstenbrand Award.
Professor Stephanie Clarke, WFNR President, said: “The standard of applications for the award was extremely high this year and Ander is a very worthy winner. His excellent project in the field of motor recovery in stroke will help optimise the use of neurofeedback-based neurorehabilitation strategies in motor rehabilitation”.
The Award recognises and rewards a neurorehabilitation project that has benefitted patients and is open to entries from clinicians, researchers and allied health professionals. Entries can come from any aspect of neurorehabilitation, for example a patient or clinic management initiative, research project, best practice development or the use of a new technological development.
Named after Professor Franz Gerstenbrand, in recognition of his continuous contributions to neurorehabilitation, the award is worth £3000 and open to WFNR members and non-members worldwide. The annual, single prize is awarded as either a travel bursary to a clinical conference, professional development course or research project.
The 3rd WFNR Franz Gerstenbrand Award is now open for entries and the deadline is 31st December 2015. For more information visit: www.wfnr.co.uk
