The Klaus Reymann Young Scientist’s Award is given for excellent contributions to junior scientists (30 years or younger at the time of abstract submission).
Based on the abstract rating by the blinded reviewer committee and nominated by the ISN&N Scientific Board the following laureates have been chosen:
Jordi Pedragosa Ollé
We are pleased to express our congratulations.
From 1968 to 1973 Klaus Reymann studied Biology/Neurophysiology at the Lomonossow University in Moscow. He obtained his PhD in 1979 for single unit and EEG recording in freely moving animals. From 1977-1991 Reymann was a postdoctoral fellow of Hansjürgen Matthies, the doyen of East German Neuroscience. In 1989 he received the postdoctoral lecture qualification (habilitation) for his work on mechanisms of synaptic plasticity. In 1994 Reymann became a full Professor for Pharmacology at the Medical Faculty of the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg.
Since 1997 Klaus Reymann is a member of the Leibniz-Institute for Neurobiology at Magdeburg where he established the Department of Neurophysiology, where he could demonstrate the late phase of long-term potentiation and the role of metabotropic glutamate receptors in plasticity. Between 1996 and 2010 Reymann was a co-founder and director of two biotech companies working on stroke protection, post-lesional plasticity and stem cell repair. During his time at the German Center for Neurodegenerative diseases (2010-2015) he focused on mechanisms and prevention of vascular and amyloid-driven neurodegeneration. Together with Georg Reiser, Klaus Reymann is the inaugural president of the ISN&N meeting series.
