FENS Research Award 2012
17.08.2012 - Dr. Ilka Diester has received the prestigious Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award. The Frankfurt-based neurobiologist got a price money of €25,000 at the Forum of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies in Barcelona.
The award was dedicated to her research at Ernst-Strüngmann-Institut where she and her team analyse sensomotoric circuits with help of optogenetic and electrophysiological tools. Their research aims at developing neuroprotheses which can compensate neuronal functional disorders. The price is sponsored by the FENS and Boehringer.
