Carnegie Mellon University

Congratulations to the 2018 recipient of the Dickson Prize in Science, Dr. Emery N. Brown, the Edward Hood Taplin Professor of Medical Engineering and Computational Neuroscience at MIT, the Warren M. Zapol Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School and anesthesiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Dr. Brown's outstanding achievements have earned him the distinction of being one of only 21 people elected to all three branches of the National Academies of Science. He is considered the "world's expert on statistical analysis of neuronal data," according to CMU faculty nominator Robert E. Kass, and his research on anesthesia has been "truly transformative" to that field.
