Oxford's Gero Miesenböck is awarded The Brain Prize 2013 for his pioneering work on optogenetics
Date:3/11/2013

could go very far, but the speed with which the idea has been adopted and developed has nevertheless been astonishing. Every other grant application in neuroscience now has an element of optogenetics in it."

Miesenbck adds: "It's nice to see the creation of new technology recognized. As Steve Jobs famously said, people don't know what they want or need until you put it in front of them. Scientists are not all that different. Most of us are consumers of technology, not inventors."

The Brain Prize 2013 is the second major international accolade which Gero Miesenbck has received in the past year. In April 2012 he was awarded Belgium's top science prize, the InBev-Baillet Latour International Health Prize, also for the invention of optogenetics.
