Max Planck Society awards Otto Hahn Medal to Daniel Margulies

Former doctoral student of the Berlin School of Mind and Brain honored

Each year the Max Planck Society (Max-Planck-Gesellschaft) honors up to 30 young scientists and researchers with the Otto Hahn Medal. Dr Daniel Margulies, former doctoral student at Humboldt-Universität’s School of Mind and Brain, was awarded the Medal at the Society’s annual general meeting in June 2011.

The award recognizes outstanding academic and scientific achievements and comes with 7,500 Euro as recognition. The Otto Hahn Medal is intended to motivate especially gifted scientists and researchers to pursue a future university or research career. Since 1978, more than 800 scientists and researchers have been awarded the Otto Hahn Medal.

Daniel Margulies joined the School in December 2007 and defended his thesis on “Resting-State Functional Connectivity fMRI: A new approach for assessing functional neuroanatomy in humans with applications to neuroanatomical, developmental and clinical question” in October 2009. His supervisors were Arno Villringer and Elke van der Meer. Currently, Daniel Margulies is a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences.
