The Cajal Club awarded a 2016 Krieg Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. Gordon Shepherd. Dr. Shepherd has organized or co-organized two International Cajal Club symposia. One in Pavia, Italy, to celebrate the work of Golgi; and the second, in 2016, in Copenhagen, Denmark, as a satellite meeting to FENS. The latter of which is where the award was presented. The Cajal Club is very grateful for Dr. Shepherd’s immense contributions to the Club, and more importantly, his wide-reaching contributions to Neuroscience. Congratulations, Gordon!
