Congratulations are in order to Martin Kahn, who has been awarded a 2018 Goodger and Schorstein scholarship.

Martin Kahn, of the Mann and Vyazovskiy research groups, has won a 2018 Goodger and Schorstein Award from the Medical Sciences Internal Fund.  Applications were received from many deserving candidates and the award will contribute towards his living expenses in the final year of his D.Phil. programme. 

Martin was funded by the Berrow Foundation Lord Florey Scholarship in his first 3 years.

Martin is currently finalising his D.Phil. under the supervision of Associate Professor Ed Mann and Associate Professor Vladyslav Vyazovskiy. In a recent joint-first author publication from the Mann lab, Martin helped characterise the rules of neuronal plasticity during sleep-like activity in brain slices.

Martin is now further exploring the interactions between sleep slow waves and neuronal plasticity in freely behaving animals.
