Jeffrey Rosen, who directs the Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research programs at UD and serves as a mentor for the UD faculty members affiliated with the center, was named the 2012 Neuroscientist of the Year by the Delaware Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience this past November.

The award recognized his success at winning funding for his research in the field, as well as his work as the new center's co-administrator.

Rosen's research on the neurobiology of emotion focuses on understanding the physiological, neuroanatomical and molecular bases of fear and anxiety.

Last year, he was awarded a $250,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health for his examination of the role of the hormone oxytocin in anxiety.
