Meet the winner of the 2018 Future Science Early Career Research Award
Future Science Group (FSG) today announced the winner of the Future Science Early Career Research Award 2018. Dr Viviana Mucci was chosen by a combination of our expert judging panel and the public vote.
Viviana is a researcher in neuro-otology at the University of Antwerp (Belgium). She completed her PhD in July 2018, and is investigating Mal de Debarquement Syndrome, a rare and heretofore little understood vestibular disorder.
“I feel very privileged and honored to have had the opportunity to participate in the Early Career Research Award 2018 for Future Science,” commented Viviana. “I would like to extend my most sincere thanks to those who voted for me and those who have supported me, in particular Dr Cherylea Browne”.
“My intention when I applied was to help me to grow in the field of vestibular research and to attract more funding opportunities,” she continued. “I am very thankful to Future Science for the opportunity to raise awareness about my research on the rare condition of Mal de Debarquement Syndrome."
The award, supported by the journal Future Science OA, aims to recognize outstanding, highly talented and motivated researchers within the first 5 years of their first career position (in academia or industry), who are set to have a big impact in their field. This year’s winner will receive membership of the Future Science OA early career advisory panel, a webinar to present their work, and a monetary prize, among other prizes.
