Dr Linda Katona, a postdoctoral neuroscientist in the group of Professor Peter Somogyi, has been awarded the inaugural Sieratzki UK-Israel Prize for Advances in Neuroscience. Linda was the first UK winner of the Young Researcher's Prize, supported by the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) and the Israel Society for Neuroscience (ISFN). The prizes, awarded in 2017 for the first time, were presented at the recent 2017 meeting of the ISFN in Eilat. In future years, biannual prizes will be given to UK winners at ISFN meetings while Israeli winners will be honoured at each bi-annual BNA Festival. Prizes are available for Young Researchers (up to 4 years post-PhD) and Early Career Researchers.
