Pearl Meister Greengard prize winner followed a gut feeling for 16 years

 

“Pediatric neurologist and neuroscientist Huda Y. Zoghbi won Rockefeller University’s 10th annual Pearl Meister Greengard Prize, which on Thursday night she attributed in part to following ‘a gut feeling.’ For 16 years, she tracked down a gene mutation that causes Rett Syndrome, a form of autism that only affects girls. None of her male colleagues supported her hunch that Rett Syndrome could be a genetic disorder.”
