Juan Burrone

Professor of Developmental Neurophysiology, Group Leader



Biography:

Juan Burrone graduated from the University of Bristol, UK, in 1995 with a BSc in Biochemistry. He then obtained a PhD from Cambridge University in 2000, having worked under the supervision of Prof. Leon Lagnado at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB). He then moved to the Molecular and Cellular Biology department at Harvard University, USA, to join Prof. Venkatesh Murthy?s lab as a postdoctoral fellow. In 2006 he joined the MRC Centre for Developmental Neurobiology as a lecturer, where he is currently a professor.

He has received many recognitions and awards, including a NARSAD Young Investigator Award (2000); Grable investigator of NARSAD (2001); Wellcome Value in People (VIP) award (2005); Lister Institute Prize winner (2009); Wellcome Trust Young Investigator award (2011); ERC Young Investigator award (2011).
