Submit your abstract and win our Adult Brain Travel Award

Submission deadline:  September 22, 2018

The successful isolation of pure and functional adult neural cells is crucial to study and understand their biology, to investigate disease mechanisms in e.g. neurodegenerative diseases, and to perform drug screenings. However, with traditional methods it is almost impossible to keep adult neural cells viable in vitro.

Miltenyi Biotec has developed workflows to investigate adult rodent neural cells including adult brain dissociation, isolation of neurons, astrocytes, microglia, oligodendrocytes, and endothelial cells, as well as cell cultivation and analysis. Thanks to these advanced technologies, a lot of exciting research is being performed on viable adult neural cells is in vitro.

In order to honor your work and your contributions to the adult neural cell research field, we are excited to announce the Adult Brain Travel Award 2018. Besides the travel fund, this award will also be an exceptional opportunity to share your innovative research either via a live webinar or as a speaker during a distinguished neuroscience meeting!


The travel awards are open to all scientists and clinicians, who work with adult neural cells in vitro using any of the following methods: adult brain dissociation, adult neural cell isolation, adult neural cell cultivation or adult neural cell analysis. 

Deadlines and submission instructions

All applicants must submit their abstracts to a neuroscience conference in 2018 and must be accepted for a poster or an oral presentation. The accepted abstract must be submitted through our website before September 22, 2018.

Judging and award

Applications will be reviewed by at least two peer reviewers and results will be announced via e-mail before October 22, 2018. One selected winner will be awarded with travel, accommodation, and registration fees for one of the neuroscience conferences in 2018, up to 1,000 Euros 

Good luck!
