The American Neurological Association has
awarded The George W. Jacoby Lectureship
to Dr. Huda Zoghbi, professor in the departments of
pediatrics, molecular and human genetics, neurology, and
neuroscience at Baylor and director of the Jan and Dan DuncanNeurological Research Insitute at Texas Children'sHospital.
The American Neurological Association is a professional society
of academic neurologists and neuroscientists devoted to advancing
the goals of academic neurology; to training and educating
neurologists and other physicians in the neurologic sciences; and
to expanding both understanding of diseases of the nervous system
and neurologists' ability to treat them.
This honor is given every three years by the ANA to a member who
has been selected based on his or her meritorious experimental work
upon any neurologic or psychiatric subject. Zoghbi will present a
lecture titled: Using Genetics to Identify Pathways that Regulate
Proteins Driving Neurodegeneration.
This year only 17 members were recognized by the ANA's 2017scientific awards. The awards will be presented at the ANA's Annual
Meeting in San Diego on October 15-17, 2017.
