Ned Kalin wins Anna-Monika Prize for neuroscience research
Ned Kalin, chair of psychiatry at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, will receive a major award this week at a conference in Amsterdam for his work in uncovering the signature of anxiety and depression in the brain.
Kalin will receive the Anna-Monika Prize and deliver the plenary address at the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) 28th annual conference. His talk will focus on his research into how anxious temperament is inherited. The Anna-Monika Prize is awarded biennially to clinical scientists who have made major contributions to the understanding of the neurobiological mechanisms of depression and who have advanced the pharmacological options for affective disorders.
Kalin has spent his career researching how anxious temperament is inherited in people and in nonhuman primates. He is the Hedberg Professor and the director of the HealthEmotions Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin—Madison.
