Nicolas Renier (Inserm), head of the “Structural Dynamics of Networks” team at the Paris Brain Institute, is one of the four laureates of the 2022 Young Investigator prize of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and European Journal of Neuroscience
Every two years, the FENS and the EJN present their Young Investigator Award to researchers in recognition of their contribution to neuroscience.
Among the four winners this year is Nicolas Renier, team leader at the Paris Brain Institute. Since 2017, he and his team have been developing research to understand the mechanisms and impact of brain plasticity during development and adult life. In 2020, he published the first complete mapping of cerebral vasculature in mice, paving the way for research into the role of the blood network in the evolution of many neurological and psychiatric pathologies.
