The Synaptic Bases of Mental Diseases

Johannes Gräff wins the Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award 2020

The Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award 2020 has been awarded to Dr Johannes Gräff for his pioneering research on epigenetic mechanisms in memory formation.

Dr Gräff is a Tenure Track Assistant Professor at EPFL in Lausanne since 2013 and member of the Swiss National Center of Competence in Research Synapsy. His research aims at shedding light onto the contribution of epigenetic mechanisms to memory formation, storage, and decline, with a particular focus on long-lasting traumatic memories and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). 

Johannes replied: “I’m deeply honoured to be the recipient of the Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award 2020. It’s a tremendous recognition of my scientific contributions, and of those who helped and accompanied me on this journey: Mentors, collaborators, friends and my family.”

The award will be presented during the 12th Forum of European Neuroscience in Glasgow  (11-15 July 2020) where Dr Gräff will give the Boehringer-Ingelheim / FENS Research Award lecture.
