The 2019 Sherrington Prize was awarded on March 20th at the Oxford Neuroscience Symposium

The 2019 Sherrington Poster Prize, sponsored by Royal Society Publishing was awarded at the Oxford Neuroscience Symposium.  Now in its 10th year this is the premier showcase for everything that is excellent in our Neuroscience Community.

First Prize went to Alexander von Klemperer a DPhil Student in the Akerman Group for his poster “Recurrent connectivity in Somatosensory cortex”.

Second Prize went to Sana Suri from the Dept of Psychiatry/Welllcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging for her poster “The heart-brain link in dementia: mid-life cardiovascular risk predicts poor brain health 20 years later”.

The prize winners were selected by popular vote and we are grateful to Lukas Krone and Sonia Spitzer from the Cortex Club for counting the ballot papers.

The symposium was a great success and concluded with an excellent talk by Professor Dame Linda Partridge FRS, FRSE FMedSci. Director of the Institute of Healthy Ageing, University College London “Metabolism and Ageing”.
