Dr. Darcie Moore, PhD, Assistant Professor and Trainer in the MCP Program, was recently honored nationally for her research. The Society for Neuroscience awarded her the Peter and Patricia Gruber International Research Award in Neuroscience. Moore’s research focuses on unraveling the mechanisms behind the age-dependent decrease in regeneration of neurons in adults. The award, supported by The Gruber Foundation, includes $25,000 for each recipient and was presented during the 2016 annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. The award recognizes scientists for outstanding research and educational pursuit in an international setting. Dr. Daniela Vallentin of Free University Berlin, also received the award. The Society for Neuroscience is an organization of about 38,000 basic scientists and clinicians who study the brain and nervous system.
