Karl Deisseroth, Gero Miesenböck and Edward Boyden win Brandeis' Gabbay Award in Biotechnology
Date:4/18/2013

th. He moved to MIT in 2006 where he is now a member of the faculty.

The Jacob Heskel Gabbay Award in Biotechnology and Medicine was created by the Jacob and Louise Gabbay Foundation, and is given in recognition of scientists in academia, medicine, or industry whose work has outstanding scientific content and significant practical consequences in the biomedical sciences. The history of science suggests that most scientific revolutions are sparked by advances in practical areas, such as instrumentation and techniques. This year's honorees exemplify the spirit of this award in that their laboratory observations have led to significant practical consequences.

The award, given annually, consists of a $15,000 cash prize (to be shared in the case of multiple winners) and a medallion. The recipients travel to Brandeis University in the fall of each year and present a lecture on their work, followed by a dinner at which the formal presentation takes place. Nominations were solicited from selected scientists in industry and academia. A panel of distinguished researchers representing the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, as well as universities and schools of medicine, are assembled to consider nominations.

This year's symposium will take place on Thursday, October 10, at 3:30 p.m. in the Shapiro Campus Center theater. The talks are free and open to the public.
