The Young Neuroendocrinologists Prize Reviews offer the winner of the top prize available from international neuroendocrinology societies for young scientists the opportunity to write a short review on the subject of their work. Dr Alexander Tups from the University of Marburg was awarded the Mick Harbuz Award for young scientists by the British Society for Neuroendocrinology in 2009 for his work on the implications of hypothalamic PI3 kinase in nutrient sensing, glucose metabolism and energy homeostasis.
