EBRI congratulates Erin Schuman for receiving The 2023 Brain Prize
Together with Michael Greenberg and Christine Holt, Erin Schuman was awarded the prestigious prize ‘for having made ground-breaking discoveries by showing how the synthesis of new proteins is triggered in different parts of the neuron, thereby guiding brain development and plasticity in ways that impact our behaviour for a lifetime'.
The Brain Prize is the world’s most prestigious neuroscience research award. Each year, it is awarded by the Lundbeck Foundation for original and influential advances in a field of brain research, from basic neuroscience to applied clinical research.
In 2019 Professor Erin Schuman delivered the EBRI Rita Levi-Montalcini Lecture on ‘Local Protein Synthesis in Neurons’.
