On September 27th, our annual general meeting took place at the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology. In addition to numerous scientists from our own ranks, a representative of the Ministry, Mr. Uwe Paul, as well as Prof. Strackeljan, the Rector of Otto von Guericke University attended and made it to a successful event.
Besides the annual review and future plans of the CRC, the highlight of this event was the first-time awarding of the Outstanding Women in Neuroscience (OWN) Award by Prof. Barnes. This award was given to a young female researcher of the CRC for her outstanding achievements. This year’s award winner is Dr. Anne Maass (subproject B04 and Z03, group leader at DZNE).
