Dr. Mei receives 2008 Mathilde Solowey Lecture Award in Neurosciences
Date:3/7/2008

. His study published this month in Nature Neuroscience provides some of the first proof that in vertebrates such as man, retrograde communication from a target cell such as a muscle cell back to the neuron is critical to neuron health and development. His research showed that when muscle cells fail to produce the protein beta-catenin, the neuron that should control that muscle cell doesnt develop or function properly. Problems with motor neuron survival and differentiation cause many neuromuscular diseases, such as muscular dystrophy and ALS but its unknown why neurons die in these diseases.

Previous Solowey Award winners include:

  • Dr. Fred Gage, professor at Salk University and former president of the Society for Neuroscience, who discovered that the human brain produces new brain cells in adulthood.

  • Dr. Steven E. Hyman, former director of the National Institute of Mental Health and provost of Harvard University, a leading authority on how internal and external stimuli affect the brain and behavior.

  • Dr. Gerald D. Fischbach, executive vice president for health and biological sciences and dean of the faculty of medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University, who cloned ARIA, a protein that allows muscle cells to form receptors for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and enabling communication with nerve cells.

Dr. Mei is a member of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Developmental Biology Subcommittee and an ad hoc reviewer for several NIH Study Sections. He is a member of the Society for Neurosciences Membership and Chapters Committees.

He is the academic editor of PLoS One and an editor-in-chief of Molecular Brain, an international journal to be launched this month. He is a member of the editorial board of NeuroSignals and Brain Research Bulletin. He is a member of the Council of the Institute of Neurosciences of the C
