The Daniel Beck Memorial PhD Student Award is given to applicants who are committed to and involved in finding ways to prevent and cure schizophrenia and who are enrolled as a PhD student.
This year’s recipient, Natalie Matosin (below), is an outstanding young scientist who is committed to a career in schizophrenia research. She is currently a fourth year doctoral student at the University of Wollongong. Natalie is trained as a molecular neurobiologist and neurogeneticist, and her research is about improving our understanding of the processes that underlie schizophrenia so that improved treatments can be developed. Natalie’s PhD research program has specifically focused on exploring the role of metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 (mGluR5) in schizophrenia.

The search for a cure for schizophrenia has taken a major leap forward.

Watch Prof Cyndi Shannon Weickert's #TEDxSydney talk here to understand what motivates our search to better understand and treat schziophrenia. And how her brother's struggle led Cyndi to ask the 3 key questions that may soon reveal a cure. http://ow.ly/wgwze
