The Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award 2018 has been awarded to Dr. David Dupret for his research on the dynamics of neuronal assemblies during memory processes.

David Dupret is leading a research programme at the Medical Research Council (MRC) Brain Network Dynamics Unit in the University of Oxford. His research is designed to reveal how populations of neurons underpin internal representations of the world and to identify the mechanisms by which such representations persist in memory. To do so, his group combines in vivo multi-channel recordings with optogenetic techniques to monitor and manipulate neuronal activity during memory-guided behaviour.

David commented: “I am thrilled to be the recipient of the 2018 Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award. This is an amazing recognition of my scientific contributions, and a great honour for myself and all lab members and mentors that I have had the privilege to work with”.

The award will be presented during the 11th Forum of European Neuroscience 2018 in Berlin where Dr Dupret will give the Boehringer-Ingelheim / FENS Research Award lecture.
