Young Researcher in Basic Sciences Award
In recognition for her significant contributions to the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders, especially her research on the ASD risk gene CYFIP1 using the Drosophila melanogaster model. Her studies have shed light on how CYFIP1 contributes to regulating brain lipid homeostasis affecting sleep behavior and mitochondrial metabolism affecting social behavior.
Young Researcher in Clinical Sciences Award
In recognition for his research in the field of psychiatry from genetics to psychopathology and treatment. In particular for his investigation of the impact of childhood trauma on psychosis and identification of the psychological and biological mediators that link childhood adversity to psychosis across the spectrum.
Jürg Tschopp Basic Life Sciences Award
In recognition for his groundbreaking research on olfaction in insects, especially his pioneering discoveries on the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, and his significant contributions to understanding the mechanisms by which environmental chemicals are detected and processed in the brain to elicit behavior. His research has greatly advanced our understanding of this complex sensory system.
Lifetime Achievement Award
In recognition for his pioneering research on the molecular mechanisms that underlie CD8 T cell mediated protection in both infection and cancer. Additionally, his discovery of Tcf1, a transcription factor crucial for the formation of long-lived CD8 T cell-memory, has significantly advanced our understanding of the immune system’s response to disease with the potential to lead to new treatments.
