Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital Neuroscientist Dr. Huda Zoghbi Awarded Gruber Neuroscience Prize

of intellectual curiosity, and to private groups that support children with neurological disorders.

"Dr. Zoghbi is an incredibly talented, transformative leader in this field, and her own personal investment of resources in the work of her team is a remarkable reflection of her conviction and commitment to this cause," said Mark A. Wallace, president and CEO of Texas Children's Hospital.  "She and her team at the NRI are making discoveries that will literally change the future for children and adults suffering from neurological disorders—not just here locally but all over the world."

"Dr. Zoghbi is a distinguished leader in the laboratory and in the community of scientists as whole," said Dr. Paul Klotman, president and CEO of Baylor College of Medicine. "She is a tremendous mentor to the next generation of scientists."

Zoghbi was chosen by a distinguished advisory board of neuroscience experts from among nominations received from around the world.   "What stands out about Dr. Zoghbi's discoveries is that the original inspiration for her science was her clinical observations – and her determination to 'go to the bench' to solve the mystery of the disorder.  Her work has revealed probable underlying mechanisms of a number of postnatal neurologic disorders, for which the path to clinical treatment can now be realistically followed. This trajectory to discovery and potential treatment is simply inspirational," said Carol Barnes, chair of the Selection Advisory Board to the Neuroscience Prize.

Zoghbi will accept the award on Nov. 13, 2011, at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Washington, D.C.
