German Scientist Wins 2018 Eppendorf & Science Prize


German scientist Johannes Kohl, Ph.D. has won the Prize for his work on neural mechanisms underlying parental care.

Johannes Kohl carried out his research in the laboratory of Catherine Dulac at Harvard University. His work has revealed how a small population of genetically defined neurons controls the motor, motivational, hormonal, and social aspects of parental behavior in male and female mice.

Johannes Kohl was presented with the international Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology at a special ceremony held on November 4 in San Diego. In 2019, he will start his own group at the Francis Crick Institute in London.
