Prof Steve Hunt prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for Neuroscience

7 May 2009

Prof Steve Hunt has been awarded the XX Ottorino Rossi Award 2009, a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for Neuroscience.

The award was made by the C. Mondino Foundation at the University of Pavia in April 2009 for Prof Hunt's research in Neuroscience including contributions to the molecular understanding of pain, emotional disorders such as depression, addiction and ADHD and synaptic plasticity.

Prof Hunt's work is funded by the Welcome Trust and MRC.

Recent published work from the Hunt laboratory has included a role for the 'Rett Disease' gene MeCP2 in pain mechanisms, new insights into attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (with UCL colleagues Clare Stanford and Hugh Gurling) and the first description of an important role for a novel neurotrophic molecule in the maturation of motor neurons (supported by the Motor Neuron Association and MRC).
