Markus Meister, Jeff C. Tarr Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, has been awarded the Golden Brain Award by the Minerva Foundation, which annually recognizes an investigator for significant findings in vision and brain research. Meister’s research has revealed surprising ways that sensory organs, specifically the retina, organize and code information before sending it to the brain.
Meister received the award at a private ceremony on November 14 in Washington D.C., at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.
