Calabrese honored by Society for Neuroscience

Ronald Calabrese, Emory College senior associate dean for research, has won the 2017 Award for Education in Neuroscience from the Society for Neuroscience in recognition of his 40-plus years educating students and developing the graduate program in neuroscience at Emory University.

Calabrese served as the graduate program director for 11 years and an additional seven as the co-director of graduate studies. His lab studies how networks of interneurons produce activity in motor neurons to generate movement, modeling inclusive processes in the neural circuit that controls the heart of the medicinal leech.

Calabrese has also assumed multiple extramural neuroscience education responsibilities, teaching for two years at the Crete Course in Computational Neuroscience in Greece and at the EU Advanced Course in Computational Neuroscience.
