Neuroscience’s answer to the Nobel Prize - The Brain Prize 2015 - goes in part to CIPSM researcher Arthur Konnerth for the invention, development and application of the revolutionary technique two-photon microscopy

Copenhagen, 9th March 2015: The world’s most valuable (€1m) neuroscience prize, The Brain Prize has been awarded, to CIPSM researcher Arthur Konnerth and three other scientists for the invention and development of two-photon microscopy, a transformative tool in brain research. Two-photon microscopy is one of a handful of techniques which over the last 15 years have dramatically changed the way we study the brain. It combines advanced techniques from physics and biology, to allow scientists to examine the finest structures of the brain, in real time.
