Rui Costa, a researcher at the Champalimaud Foundation, received the 2012 Young Investigator Award from the American Society for Neuroscience, along with his colleague Guo-li Ming (John Hopkins School of Medicine, USA). Noting the exceptional nature of this year's award - it is usually given to researchers based in the United States - Rui Costa adds, "It is very motivating to see our work being recognized. But it is also a great responsibility because many of the researchers that received the award in previous years have made remarkable contributions to neuroscience. The research developed by Rui Costa is supported by FCT and several international agencies.
