Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology 2008
The Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology 2008, an annual international research prize of US-$25,000, has been awarded to Mauro Costa-Mattioli, Ph.D., of the Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas, USA. By revealing the importance of translational control in the formation of long-lasting memories, Dr. Mauro Costa-Mattioli’s research could eventually help develop new treatments for major brain disorders including impaired memory function in aging and neurodegenerative diseases.
The Prize is sponsored by Eppendorf and the internationally renowned journal, Science. The Prize is open to all young scientists who are 35 years of age or younger and who have made outstanding contributions to neurobiological research. The next deadline for applications is June 15, 2009. For more information on the Prize, visit www.eppendorf.com/prize.
