Alison J. Douglas and Glenn I. Hatton Memorial Awards
These awards will be presented at WCNH 2015 to meritorious students and postdoctoral fellows.

Alison J. Douglas Memorial Award
Prof Alison Douglas 1961-2012, a leading member of the Neuroendocrinology Group in Edinburgh, died of breast cancer in May 2012, at the age of 50. She loved neuroendocrinology and had a passion for teaching. She shared her enthusiasm with the many students she taught and mentored and was keen to support young scientists, particularly women, in their careers.

The Alison J. Douglas Memorial Award (US$1,000) will be presented for outstanding research on the neurobiology of vasopressin and oxytocin.

Glenn I. Hatton Memorial Awards
Glenn I. Hatton died in January 2009 at the age of 74, following a brief illness from pancreatic cancer. Throughout a long and distinguished career, Glenn used neurophysiological and neuroanatomical techniques to study oxytocin and vasopressin cells in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei. Glenn made many seminal and lasting contributions from over 150 peer-reviewed articles and many insightful reviews and chapters.

Two Glenn I. Hatton Memorial Awards (US$1000 each) will be presented for research on the neurobiology of vasopressin and oxytocin
