Grants and Awards

Taeun Chang Early Career Travel Award

The Newborn Brain Society is proud to announce the Taeun Chang Early Career Travel Award, which will be presented to the trainee/early career (within 5 years post-training) candidate who submits the abstract selected as the most outstanding abstract at the International Newborn Brain Conference. The award will include costs of registration, travel and accommodations to the INBBC.  


This award was established in the name of Dr. Taeun Chang (1971-2022), who was a founding member of the NBS, an active member of the Publications and Guidelines Committee from inception, and a distinguished child neurologist who contributed greatly to establishing the field of neonatal neurology and neurocritical care. An innovator, scientist, dedicated clinician, and beloved mentor to numerous trainees, Dr. Chang’s contributions to advancing newborn brain care will be honored and remembered annually through the NBS Taeun Chang Early Career Travel Award.

NBS Trainee Awards

The Newborn Brain Society will provide a limited number of NBS Trainee Awards for best submitted abstracts to be presented by a trainee, in the form of free conference registration.
