Congratulations to Neuroscience graduate student and postdoctoral fellows for their Young Investigators’ Day awards!


Congratulations to the following graduate student and postdoctoral members of the Neuroscience Department for their Young Investigators’ Day awards!
https://hopkinsyidp.org/


Young Investigators’ Day was established in 1978 to recognize young investigators who are trained at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and to provide them with a forum for their work. The awards are intended to recognize research undertaken by applicants while registered as students or postdoctoral fellows at the school of medicine. This year 1 PREP scholar, 12 students, 9 postdocs, and 1 clinical fellow were selected to receive Young Investigators’ Day prizes. These individuals were selected from an exceptionally strong pool of applicants by a committee of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine faculty.
