Rockefeller’s Cori Bargmann Receives Gruber Neuroscience Prize

The 2024 Gruber Neuroscience Prize is being awarded to Cori Bargmann, PhD, Rockefeller’s Torsten N. Wiesel Professor, Head of the Lulu and Anthony Wang Laboratory of Neural Circuits and Behavior, and Vice President for Academic Affairs. Bargmann is sharing the honor with Gerald Rubin, PhD, of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus. Both are being recognized for their pioneering work elucidating the organization of circuits in behavior, and for developing new genetic tools, which have advanced the field of neuroscience. “The work performed by Bargmann and Rubin has advanced the field of neuroscience in multiple ways,” says Frances Jensen, MD, of the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, and chair of the selection advisory board to the prize. “This includes the work they have done that has offered insight into the question of the link between biology and behavior, as well as their generosity in creating and sharing tools that have helped move the field forward, by offering new capabilities for carrying out research accessible to a wide range of institutions. Their impact on the field cannot be understated.”
