From January 2016 he has been appointed by the Rector Professor Jaunito Camilleri as Senior Researcher Advisor by the University of Malta within the Department of Physiology and Biochemistry. Award winner and world-renowned neuroscientist, Professor Giacomo Rizzolatti received the `Brain Prize' in 2014, a prestigious prize for brain research bestowed by the Grete Lundbeck European Brain Research Prize Foundation in Copenhagen. Professor Giacomo Rizzolatti was invited by Professor Giuseppe Di Giovanni on behalf of the Malta Neuroscience Network Program of the University of Malta as key-note speaker at the IX Malta Medical School Conference (MMSC), the most important event for the local medical community, which this year was held in St. Julian at the Hilton Hotel from the 3rd to the 5th of December.
