Lucy Hinder, Ph.D., a researcher in the Program for Neurology Research & Discovery, has been awarded the Wolfe Neuropathy Research Prize by the American Neurological Association for her work on the impact of diet on diabetic neuropathy.

Dr. Hinder joined the PNR&D team in 2009. That’s the same year the Wolfe Prize was established by Winston Wolfe and the ANA, to honor outstanding investigators who identify a new cause or treatment of axonal peripheral neuropathy.

The prize is $2,000, and includes complimentary registration at the ANA Annual Meeting, a plaque, and up to $2,000 in travel expenses to present at the event. This year’s ANA meeting will be held Sept. 27-29 in Chicago.

The American Neurological Association is a professional society of academic neurologists and neuroscientists devoted to advancing the goals of academic neurology; to training and educating neurologists and other physicians in the neurologic sciences; and to expanding both our understanding of diseases of the nervous system and our ability to treat them.
