Other Mingle with "The Brain Prize 2022" recipient Professor Ole Kiehn
Join us to celebrate Professor Ole Kiehn, recipient of The Brain Prize 2022, on 26 April 2022 in Biomedicum. No registration required.
Gilberto Fisone, Head of Department of Neuroscience, will open the mingle by saying a few words and welcome the guests.
There may be a few words from colleagues at the department during the event.
About The Brain Prize
The Brain Prize was founded by the Lundbeck Foundation and was first awarded in 2011. Since then, the prize has been awarded to 41 scientists from nine different countries. It is the world’s largest prize for brain research.
About Ole Kiehn
Professor Ole Kiehn, from the Department of Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet and at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, is one of three neuroscientists receiving the world's largest prize for brain research, awarded on a yearly basis by the Lundbeck Foundation.
Ole Kiehn studies the organization of neuronal circuits that execute movements. His lab has employed and developed electrophysiological approaches in combination with genetic and optical technologies to enable cellular and circuit-level analysis of spinal motor circuits.
His work has identified key elements of spinal circuitries necessary for producing changes in timing and coordination of locomotion. Work from his lab has also delineated the diversification of brainstem circuits involved in the episodic expression or context-dependent selection of locomotor behaviour. The work links neuronal circuit organization to behaviour and demonstrates translational potential in the development of therapies for movement disorders caused by trauma or disease.”
