The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in recognition of his contributions to neuroscience. Sanes currently serves as Co-Director of the Harvard Brain Sciences Initiative.
At the ceremony on June 13th, Hebrew University president Asher Cohen cited Sanes’s pioneering work on the Brainbow technique, his research on neurological disorders, and his contributions to the Harvard Center for Brain Science.
“Aside from the personal gratification of receiving this great honor, I’m pleased by the spotlight it shines on the importance of understanding how the brain works,” Sanes says. “Brain science is in a phase of incredible growth, beginning to find ways to treat currently incurable devastating neurological and psychiatric disorders. And beyond health, what we’re learning has implications for nearly all human endeavors, from law to art to politics to philosophy.”
Sanes recently traveled to Jerusalem for the ceremony at Hebrew University. Congratulations to Professor Sanes! .
