Sung-Yon Kim Receives Donald B. Lindsley Prize in Behavioral Neuroscience

WASHINGTON, DC — The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) will award the Donald B. Lindsley Prize to Sung-Yon Kim, PhD, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Supported by The Grass Foundation, the prize recognizes an outstanding PhD thesis in the area of general behavioral neuroscience. The $2,500 award was established in 1979 in honor of Donald B. Lindsley, an early trustee of The Grass Foundation. The prize will be presented during Neuroscience 2014, SfN’s annual meeting and the world’s largest source of emerging news about brain science and health.

“The Society is pleased to honor Dr. Kim’s groundbreaking research in the neuroanatomical basis of anxiety behavior,” SfN President Carol Mason said. “His approach to behavioral neuroscience will likely have a broad and lasting impact on biology and medicine.”
