Stephanie Forkel receives Elizabeth Warrington Prize

Donders Principal Investigator and leader of the Language and Communication theme, Dr Stephanie Forkel, has been awarded the 2023 Elizabeth Warrington Prize by the British Neuropsychological Society (BNS). The Elizabeth Warrington Prize is awarded annually based on distinguished work in neuropsychology in the first decade of a career.

The prize for outstanding researchers is named in honour of Elizabeth Warrington,  emeritus professor of clinical neuropsychology at the University College London. Her influential work is a foundation for understanding normal brain function, as well as for innovating clinical methods in the development of numerous tests that can be used to diagnose brain injuries and for rehabilitation.

Forkel said, ‘I am deeply humbled and filled with immense gratitude to accept the highly esteemed Elizabeth Warrington Prize, an honour that pays tribute to a true pioneer in the field. It is with profound reverence that I hold the British Neuropsychological Society (BNS). I am privileged to be recognised by this esteemed society and to join the ranks of distinguished individuals who have received this award before me. This recognition is a powerful catalyst and fuels my commitment to advancing our understanding of the human brain and its intricate workings in the spirit of Elizabeth Warrington .’

The Prize will be awarded during the Spring 2024 Award ceremony at Queen Square, London.
