Janett Rosenberg Trubatch Career Development Award
The Janett Rosenberg Trubatch Career Development Award, supported by the Trubatch Family, recognizes originality and creativity in research and promotes success during academic transitions prior to tenure.
This award, previously known as the Career Development Award until 2011, was renamed in 2011 to honor Janett Rosenberg Trubatch.
Two recipients each year receive a $2,000 award and complimentary registration to SfN's annual meeting. The award is presented at the Celebration of Women in Neuroscience Luncheon held during the meeting.
