Global Preclinical Data Forum and European College of Neuropsychopharmacology Announce the Winner of the 2020 Best Negative Data Prize
The Global Preclinical Data Forum (GPDF), a jointly sponsored U.S. and European initiative, funded by Cohen Veterans Bioscience (CVB) and the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP), announced today the winner of the 2020 "Best Negative Data Prize." The prize is awarded to the researcher or research group whose neuroscience study best exemplifies data where the outcomes do not confirm the expected results or working hypothesis.
