Candidates for the fellowship must be full-time Ph.D. or MD/Ph.D. students who have completed their doctoral oral and written exams, and who are engaged in research in the laboratory of a core or joint member of Pharmacology faculty. The awards are for the support of outstanding advanced graduate students who are undertaking their research training in areas broadly related to understanding developmental disabilities; this might include work in neurobiology, neuropharmacology, or developmental biology. The awards are based on a written statement (application) by the student to the Award Committee.
