Tatjana Tchumatchenko receives the Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award 2022
On October 14, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and Boehringer Ingelheim announced the winners of the Boehringer Ingelheim FENS Research Award 2022. It will be awarded to Tatjana Tchumatchenko (DE) and Tom Baden (UK) during the FENS Forum 2022.
/BN, Duppé/ Tatjana Tchumatchenko is Professor and Deputy Director at the Institute of Physiological Chemistry at the University Medical Center Mainz and Group Leader at the Institute of Experimental Epileptology and Cognitive Research at the University Medical Center Bonn since this winter term.
The goal of her research team is to combine mathematics, physics and computer science to understand how neurons encode incoming information – to quote herself, she wants to “figure out how the neural code works and which computational strategies are available to neurons.”
Tchumatchenko always provides her team with opportunities to develop academically and scientifically. Since starting as a group leader, she has mentored over thirty master’s and bachelor’s students, and doctoral candidates. She is actively committing herself for the advancement of women in science and the topic of integration.
Tchumatchenko’s research has been and continues to be funded by renowned institutions such as the Max Planck Society, the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the European Research Council (ERC). She has received many prizes and awards for her work, including the Heinz Maier Leibnitz Prize in 2016, and was recently appointed as a member of the Young Academy of Europe.
The Bernstein Network extends its heartfelt congratulations to Tatjana Tchumatchenko on winning this great award and looks forward to the award ceremony at the FENS Forum in July 2022 in Paris.
