Join us in congratulating Eve Marder of Brandeis University, this year’s recipient of the Gruber Foundation Neuroscience Prize. Dr. Marder is being lauded for her pioneering research into the 30-neuron central-pattern generator in the decapod stomatogastric-ganglion (STG) and her continuing contribution to the neuroscience community.
Researchers at theÂ Marder LabÂ have been focusing on how neural circuits maintain homeostasis despite neuromodulation as well as external inputs, such as environmental temperature.

Marder is also a member of the inaugural working group of President Obama’s ambitiousÂ Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (Brain) Initiative.
She is scheduled to receive the neuroscience prize and deliver the Peter and Patricia Gruber Lecture at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, in San Diego in November.
