The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and Boehringer Ingelheim are delighted to announce that the Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award 2020 has been awarded to Dr Johannes Gräff for his pioneering research on epigenetic mechanisms in memory formation.
Dr Gräff is a Tenure Track Assistant Professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne since 2013. His research aims at shedding light onto the contribution of epigenetic mechanisms to memory formation, storage, and decline, with a particular focus on long-lasting traumatic memories and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
Johannes replied: “I’m deeply honoured to be the recipient of the Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award 2020. It’s a tremendous recognition of my scientific contributions, and of those who helped and accompanied me on this journey: Mentors, collaborators, friends and my family.”
FENS and Boehringer Ingelheim would like to congratulate Dr Gräff on his outstanding scientific achievements. The award will be presented during the 12th Forum of European Neuroscience in Glasgow (11-15 July 2020) where Dr Gräff will give the Boehringer-Ingelheim / FENS Research Award lecture.
Dr Gräff is also the Chair of the FENS Hertie Winter School 2019 and is a FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence Alumni.
