Doctoral research award

British Psychological Society award for Dr Anne-Lise Goddings.

This year’s British Psychological Society award for Outstanding Doctoral Research Contributions to Psychology has been awarded to Dr Anne-Lise Goddings, who looks into the effect of puberty on the human brain. She studied for her doctorate at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and UCL Institute of Child Health.

Dr Goddings has been described as an exceptional and dedicated researcher who has made a highly significant contribution to adolescent cognitive neuroscience through her PhD. Her work has already led to seven papers in high-impact journals and a book chapter, and she has presented at several international meetings.

Goddings said: ‘It is a real honour to receive this prestigious award. I am extremely grateful to both my PhD supervisors, Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore and Professor Russell Viner, for their inspirational support and training, and to all my collaborators and fellow researchers. I look forward to continuing my research in my new NIHR Clinical Lecturer role at the UCL Institute of Child Health, investigating how chronic disease impacts on the developing adolescent brain.’
