Sylvester E. Vizi is a researcher in pharmacology and Director of the Institute of Experimental Medicine in the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Vizi interest in the pharmacology and physiology of transmitter release and its presynaptic modulation was stimulated by his association with Sir William Paton in Oxford where he had worked as a Riker fellow in 1967. He has pioneered the presynaptic receptor-mediated inhibition of transmitter release and the concept of non-synaptic "cross-talk" between neurones. His original paper of this topic became "Citation Classic" in 1991, collecting over 800 citations. His recent research interest covers the presynaptic modulation of chemical neurotransmission, effects of drugs applied in psychiatry, synaptic and non-synaptic "cross-talk" between neurones, role of sympathetic innervation in immune responses, non-synaptically expressed receptors and transporters as targets of drugs. Professor E.S. Vizics present appointments include: Vice President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences; Director, Institute of Experimental Medicine, Hungarian Academy of Sciences; Chairman, Department of Pharmacology and Therapy, Haynal Imre Postgraduate Medical University; President, Hungarian Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology; President, Hungarian Science and Medical Ethics Committee; Editor-in-chief of Neurochemistry International; Section Editor of Brain Research Bulletin; Member, Academia Europaea; Member, the Presidium, Health & Medical Sciences Committee.
