Rohini Kuner to be awarded Feldberg Prize
Prof. Dr. Rohini Kuner, speaker of the Heidelberg Pain Consortium, has received the Feldberg Foundation Prize. With the purpose of promoting scientific contact between German and English scientists within the sphere of experimental medical research, the Feldberg Foundation selects a German and a British laureate each year to establish scientific exchange lectures between the two countries.
Rohini Kuner’s research interests span neurobiological mechanisms underlying chronic pain disorders, elucidation of neural circuits mediating pain and other neurological disorders, cell-cell interactions in the nervous system and development of new strategies for pharmacological therapies. She is particularly known for her work on the molecular neurobiology of pain and has received several national and international scientific awards for uncovering key molecules mediating pain of inflammatory, neuropathic or cancer origin.
