The National Academy of Sciences will honor Asif A. Ghazanfar and 17 other individuals with awards in recognition of their outstanding scientific achievements in a wide range of fields spanning the physical, biological, and social sciences.

Ghazanfar, associate professor of neuroscience and psychology at Princeton University, will receive the Troland Research Award. 

Of South Asian descent, Ghazanfar is being recognized for advancing our understanding of the evolution, development, and neural basis for primate communication as a means to understand human communication. 
Two Troland Research Awards of $50,000 are given annually to recognize unusual achievement by young investigators and to further empirical research within the broad spectrum of experimental psychology.
