Nomination for the Sophie Award
The Sophie Award for Young KCNQ2 Investigators
KCNQ2 research is a growing and exciting field of study in pediatric neurology. The Jack Pribaz Foundation is proud to be a pioneer supporter of KCNQ2-related epilepsy research, and we are looking for talented young investigators to join our cause.
The Sophie Award for Young KCNQ2 Investigators was established in honor of a child named Sophie who passed away from complications of the disease. The aim of the award is to inspire the next generation of KCNQ2 researchers with a grant to conduct promising KCNQ2 studies.
Young investigators are within ten years of completing their research degree or medical residency (or equivalent). Nomination of a young investigator will include:
- A one-page letter of recommendation by a senior faculty
- A one-page personal statement describing
- work to date in KCNQ2 research
- study plan for new or continuing KCNQ2 research
