Princeton neuroscientist wins Keck young investigator award

Princeton neuroscientist Joe Tsien, whose creation last year of a "smart mouse" was hailed as a breakthrough in neuroscience, has received a young investigator award that provides major new funding for his research.

The W. M. Keck Foundation of Los Angeles named Tsien one of five Distinguished Young Scholars in Medical Research. The award, provides about $1 million in funding over five years, will accelerate Tsien's search for genes that control learning and memory.
