The David Marsden Award 2019 is offering 10,000€ to stimulate research on dystonia.

Dystonia Europe established the David Marsden Award in 2003, to acknowledge Professor Marsden’s work on the dystonias, and to honour the immense part he played in improving the lives of so many people who live with the condition. (Charles) David Marsden (1938–1998), was a British neurologist who made a significant contribution to the field of movement disorders. He was described as ‘arguably the leading academic neurologist and neuroscientist of his generation in the UK’.

The aim of this award is to stimulate developing knowledge of and interest in dystonia through publications of aetiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis in dystonia or on the psycho social effects. The David Marsden Award 2019 is supported by a grant from Ipsen to Dystonia Europe.

The deadline for submissions is 31 January 2019 and you can find out more at
