KAUST researcher Corrado Calì awarded at Italian neuroscience conference

Dr. Corrado Calì, a KAUST researcher, won an award in Italy in June at the Brainstorming Research Assembly for Young Neuroscientists (BraYn).

​KAUST researcher Dr. Corrado Calì recently won an award at the Brainstorming Research Assembly for Young Neuroscientists (BraYn) held in Genoa, Italy, from June 29 to 30. The BraYn meeting was created with the goal of attracting young researchers (under the age of 40) from different laboratories from Italy, Europe and abroad to come together to share their knowledge and skills and forge collaborative ties between different institutions and research groups.

Calì, who is a research scientist in Dean Pierre Magistretti's Laboratory of Cellular Imaging and Energetics at KAUST, won an award for a talk based on his current research on how the modulation of glycogen can enhance or prevent the stabilization of synapses, which play a key role in mechanisms of memory.
