SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowships are aimed at highly qualified young researchers who aspire to a permanent professorship. Valerio Zerbi from the Department of Health, Science and Technology at ETH Zürich was awarded with one. He will move to EPF Lausanne and implement his research project entitled Blue Networks. How the Locus Coeruleus controls and reorganizes brain activity. We congratulate and wish much success.
