- This award is particularly meaningful because the idea of using pharmacology to understand how the brain drives behavior was what got me interested in science, particularly experimental science. It is really encouraging to be recognized by many of the scientists who have inspired a lot of my research, especially as I start my own lab here at LiU, says Leah.

Leah Mayo was recently appointed as an assistant professor in the Centre for Social and Affective Neuroscience at Linköping University. Her lab’s research will focus on the role of the endocannabinoid system in the neurobiology of stress-related psychiatric disorders. She will deliver a plenary lecture at next year's EBPS Biennial in Maastricht.

Congratulations, Leah!
