The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) announced that Allison J. Doupe, MD, PhD, will receive the 2014 Pradel Research Award in recognition of her groundbreaking work using songbirds to reveal important features of how neural circuits process information and are shaped by experience. Doupe will be recognized in a ceremony during the National Academy of Sciences’ 151st annual meeting in April.

"I am very flattered and honored to get this award. It reflects especially on my wonderful lab members over the years, who were instrumental to this work, as well as my supportive colleagues at UCSF, who have helped in countless ways," she said.

Established by an Act of Congress in 1863, the NAS is a private, non-profit society of distinguished scholars charged with providing independent, objective advice to the nation on matters related to science and technology. The Pradel Research Award is presented annually by the NAS to recognize and further outstanding research in neuroscience.
