John Meitzen, assistant professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at NC State University, has been named a 2016 recipient of the Society for Neuroscience’s (SfN) prestigious Next Generation Award.
SfN is the largest international neuroscience society, with nearly 38,000 members. The Next Generation Award is a national honor that recognizes SfN members who have made outstanding contributions to public communication, outreach and education about neuroscience.
Meitzen was recognized for his role as one of the pioneers of the annual Brain Awareness Night at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, which will be held for the fourth time in March 2017. The event features hands-on brain and behavior exhibits, talks from NC State students and a keynote by a prominent neuroscientist.
