Anna Marius receives prestigious Sofja Kovalevskaja Award 2017 of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation

Anna Marius receives prestigious Sofja Kovalevskaja Award 2017 of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation

The Sofja Kovalevskaja Award is one of the most valuable academic awards in Germany and allows the recipients to carry out research work under unique conditions: They may spend five years working on a research project at a university of their own choice in Germany and build up their own working groups – independently and largely untroubled by administrative constraints. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation has singled out six international researchers between 30 and 37 years of age for one of Germany’s most valuable science awards: the winners will each be granted up to €1.65 million. Tübingen scientist Anna Marius (Levina) is one of this year’s awardees. She is based at the Berstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Tübingen and Werner Reinhardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) at the University of Tübingen and works in the field of systemic neuroscience and computational neuroscience with the host professor Matthias Bethge.
