Research Contributions of Early Career Scientists

Through its Early Career Impact Awards, FABBS recognizes scientists who are in the early stages
(first 10 years post-PhD) of their professional careers and have shown promise as a leading
researcher. In their brief careers, these investigators have made noteworthy contributions to the
sciences of mind, brain, and behavior and have also worked to share their research with the
public through outreach in their communities, blogs, or social media. Through flash presentations,
the scientists will describe their research, why it’s important, and how federal support has been
instrumental in their research careers so far.
