The 2019 Guyot Prize is awarded to prof. Tobias Moser from the Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen, Germany, for his contribution to our understanding of the synapses in the inner ear and to the development on an optogenetic cochlear implant. We will celebrate this prize with a symposium entitled ‘Advances in Biological Otology’. You are cordially invited to take part in the festive event.
About the Guyot Prize
The Guyot Prize is the oldest scientific prize awarded by the University of Groningen.
The prize is awarded for outstanding achievements in auditory science and otology. It has been awarded every five years since 1914. Earlier recipients include C. Hallpike (awarded 1969), Eelco Huizinga (1964) and later Nobel prize winners Robert Barany (1914) and Georg von Bekesy (1939). The prize is named after Henri Daniel Guyot, who founded the school for the deaf in Groningen in 1790, the first of its kind in The Netherlands.
