Morris-Coole Prize 2008

Morris-Coole Prize

The Morris-Coole Prize is an ILAE award that is given annually in recognition of an outstanding research paper published in Epilepsia the previous year on any field of epilepsy research, either clinical or basic. The prize was established through the generosity of Christopher and Sandra Morris-Coole with the intention of stimulating excellence in epilepsy research as well as rewarding young researchers for outstanding contributions to the field. Award winners receive 10,000 euros and present the Morris-Coole lecture at a major epilepsy meeting (at the International Epilepsy Congress during the years it is held).

Papers are nominated to the selection committee by the associate editors of Epilepsia from among the papers that were published in the journal the previous year. Last year’s Prize winner was chosen from among 14 nominations that were deemed deserving of special recognition by the associate editors.  The associate editors are currently identifying likely manuscripts for the 2008 award.
