HOUSTON, June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Huda Y. Zoghbi,  director of the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute (NRI) at Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), has been awarded the 2011 Neuroscience Prize of The Peter and Patricia Gruber Foundation for her pioneering work in unlocking the genetic and molecular mysteries behind a number of devastating neurological disorders, including Rett syndrome, spinocerebellar ataxia type 1, and brain tumors called medulloblastomas.   To learn more about Dr. Huda Zoghbi and the work that she does, please see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiBbyMeI-sc.

"I am deeply honored by this award. The Gruber Foundation seeks to draw attention to work they believe helps better the world. That was my goal in entering research, and although we have a way to go in the biomedical sciences to really improve the lives of patients with neurological diseases, I am grateful for the foundation's support and for their ongoing efforts to promote awareness of advances in neuroscience," said Zoghbi, who is professor of neuroscience, pediatrics, molecular and human genetics, and neurology at Baylor and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. "I am grateful to my mentors, particularly Dr. Art Beaudet, and my colleagues and trainees at Baylor College of Medicine as well as my long-time collaborator Dr. Harry Orr. It was really the nurturing Baylor environment that transformed me from a physician into a well-rounded scientist. I would not have had such a rewarding career anywhere else."

Orr, director of the Institute for Human Genetics at the University of Minnesota, is a long-time collaborator with Zoghbi. They co-disc
