Michael Prize 2017

Boris Bernhardt

The recipient of the 2017 Michael Prize is Dr. Boris Bernhardt from the Montreal Neurological Institute. His work over the last decade has focused on the neuroimaging of epilepsy in people. His work is helping to track the disease over time, and is providing new insights into brain plasticity, connectivity and cognition. He uses multimodal MRI combined with advanced statistical analysis to map the pathological changes associated with epilepsy.

The prize money of €20.000 was kindly donated by UCB. The Michael Prize 2017 will be officially awarded at the 32nd International Epilepsy Congress in Barcelona (September 2 - 6, 2017).
