The Annual Review Prize Lecture is The Physiological Society's most prestigious lecture.

Gero MiesenboeckWaynflete Professor of Physiology Gero Miesenböck has been chosen by The Physiological Society to deliver the Annual Review Prize Lecture at Europhysiology 2022, due to take place in Copenhagen from 16 - 18 September 2022.

The Annual Review Prize Lecture is The Society's premier award and recognises research that has a wide interest and impact. The Lecture is usually published in the Journal of Physiology and comes with a prize of £500. In recent years, the lecture was awarded to John O’Keefe (2016), David Eisner (2017), Juleen Zierath (2018), Silvia Arber (2019) and David Attwell (2020).

Professor Miesenböck has received numerous international awards for the invention of optogenetics, including the InBev Baillet-Latour International Health Prize (2012), the Brain Prize (2013), the Heinrich Wieland Prize (2015), the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award (2016), the Massry Prize (2016), the Warren Alpert Foundation Award (2019) and most recently, the Shaw Prize (2020).

On accepting the invitation, Professor Miesenböck said: “I am honoured to join so many distinguished colleagues from close by and further afield who have given this lecture before me. And returning to a favourite city, Copenhagen, is something to look forward to in the joyless monotony of the recent past."
