Congratulations to R. Benton on his FBM “Jürg Tschopp Basic Life Sciences” award

Richard Benton received on June 22, 2023 the Jürg Tschopp Basic Life Sciences Award in recognition for his groundbreaking research on olfaction in insects, especially his pioneering discoveries on the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, and his significant contributions to understanding the mechanisms by which environmental chemicals are detected and processed in the brain to elicit behavior.
