The 2018 J. Allyn Taylor International Prize in Medicine is awarded to Istvan Mody, PhD. Dr. Mody is a world-renowned epilepsy researcher, whose extraordinary body of work has contributed to our fundamental understanding of the disease, as well as clinical evaluation of new treatments. He is recognized as a pioneer in determining how the regulation of brain activity leads to epilepsy.

Among his numerous research breakthroughs, he is credited as one of the first researchers to recognize that naturally occurring steroid hormone fluctuations may contribute to epilepsy through alterations in brain activity, and that very high frequency brain activity may cause development of the disease.

A Distinguished University Professor in Neurology and Physiology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Dr. Mody is the recipient of numerous international awards, including the Michael Prize for Epilepsy, the American Epilepsy Society’s Basic Scientist Award and the Hauptmann Prize. He becomes the 34th recipient of the prestigious J. Allyn Taylor International Prize of Medicine.

Robarts has been awarding the Taylor Prize to leading scientists since 1985 and recognizes the contributions of outstanding internationally recognized researchers. The J. Allyn Taylor International Prize in Medicine is named after the founding Chair of the Board at Robarts, and includes a cash prize of $25,000 and a medal bearing the likeness of J. Allyn Taylor. The award is generously supported by the C.H. Stiller Memorial Foundation and the family of the late J. Allyn Taylor.
