These three new postdoctoral scholars join last year's scholars Jeffrey Jones, Christopher Lee, Lisanne Schulze, and Donovan Ventimiglia as part of the second cohort of the program.

Designed to support postdoctoral scholars in their pursuit of innovative neuroscience research, the KIBM Postdoctoral Scholars Program awards $50,000 for 12 months and is renewable for a second year contingent upon progress and the faculty mentor's continued sponsorship. Scholars are selected based on their past accomplishments, the innovative ideas proposed for their postdoctoral research and their passion for engaging scientific discovery with society. Scholars will present progress about their research at the KIBM annual symposium in spring 2024.

Please help us in congratulating this year's new postdoctoral scholars cohort!
