Dr. Laura Colgin receives Distinguished Investigator Grant from the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation

Congratulations to Dr. Laura Colgin on receiving a Distinguished Investigator Grant from the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation!  Recipients are awarded a $100k one-year grant to explore new frontiers in understanding a wide range of neuropsychiatric disorders. Dr. Colgin's research project seeks to enhance our understanding of how neurophysiological disturbances in the hippocampus contribute to abnormal social behaviors in individuals with autism associated with Fragile X Syndrome. 

The Distinguished Investigator Grants were given to 10 full professors at research institutions in the United States and abroad who are conducting innovative projects in neurobiological and behavioral research. Awardees were selected by a committee of the BBRF Scientific Council, which is comprised of 193 experts across disciplines in brain and behavior research who review grant applications and recommend the most promising ideas to fund.
