We are excited to announce that Professor Huda Zoghbi and Professor Sir Adrian Bird have been awarded The Brain Prize 2020, worth 10 million Danish kroner. The Brain Prize 2020 was awarded for their fundamental and pioneering work on Rett syndrome which established the importance of epigenetic regulation in both brain development and the maintenance of normal adult brain function. It also points to novel opportunities for treatment of this and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Due to their research, we’re also closer to a treatment breakthrough and we’ve come to understand that neurological developmental disorders are not necessarily irreversible.
Congratulations and a big thank you for your outstanding work!
