Prestigous young neuropsychopharmacology investigator award for Cambridge Neuroscientist

Dr. Chris Dodds (pictured left) has been awarded the International College of Neuropsycho-pharmacology (CINP)  Rafaelsen Young Investigators Award. He will receive the award at a special ceremony at the CINP congress in Hong Kong in June 2010.

The Rafelsen Young Investigator Awards are chosen by an international scientific jury based on academic accomplishments and contribution to the field of neuropsychpharmacology. These awards are given to young researchers under the age of 35.

Chris joined Cambridge Neuroscience in 2009, working in a group headed by Prof. Pradeep Nathan (pictured right). Chris studied psychology at the University of Wales and obtained his PhD from the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at the University of Cambridge. On completion of his PhD, he trained as a postdoctoral fellow with Professor Trevor Robbins in the Department of Experimental Psychology at Cambridge, where he developed an interest in neuropsychopharmacology, working on the pharmacological modulation of frontostriatal circuits involved in attention and executive control, primarily employing pharmacological fMRI methods.
