5th Biennial meeting of the rmn² 2018

The 5th Biennial Meeting again proved to be a productive and educational event for the Rhine-Main neuroscience community and beyond. This year boasted a sterling lineup of external and internal speakers with the 1080 strongly represented.

The young scientist poster presentation prize was awarded to the 1080’s Diane Bissen (Acker-Palmer project) for her work on GRIP1 and its interactants in synaptic plasticity.

The rmn2 is led by the CRC 1080’s Jochen Roeper.

 


 

Boehringer Ingelheim Award

Frank Bicker (Schmidt/Tegeder project) was awarded the Boehringer Ingelheim 2018 prize for his 1080 research, which demonstrates the important role of the protein EGFL7 in the formation of new nerve cells from stem cells in the adult brain. These findings have direct implications for lifelong learning, but also for possible therapeutic approaches in regenerative medicine.
