Ann Kennedy ’08 was named the winner of the 2022 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology for her research that provides new insight into aggression and how aggressive motivation is regulated by the brain.
Kennedy received undergraduate degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Biology from Johns Hopkins University and a PhD in Neurobiology and Behavior from Columbia University. After completing her postdoctoral fellowship at Caltech, she started her laboratory in the Department of Neuroscience at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in 2020. Her laboratory develops computational methods to characterize the structure of complex behavior and model its control by the brain.
