Young Investigator Award winners 2021
At ECF's Annual Meeting, awards for the best poster presentation are granted to Young Investigators presenting a poster.
Through the Young Investigator Awards, the European Charcot Foundation invests in the future.
Delegates of 35 years or younger presenting a poster during ECF's Annual Meeting automatically participate to the Young Investigator Awards, announced during the Annual Meeting.
45 Young Investigators from over 20 different countries were accepted to present their poster during the 29th Annual Meeting. All 45 posters were subdivided in 5 different categories: Basic Studies, Clinical, Epidemiology, Investigations and Treatment.
For each category, a selection of ECF Board Members reviewed the posters.
