Congratulations to Dr. Yadong Li! Currently a postdoc in the Juan Song lab, Yadong was awarded a prestigious BBRF Young Investigator Grant. The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is the nation’s top non-governmental funder of mental health research grants.
From the BBRF Website: The BBRF Young Investigator Grant provides support for the most promising young scientists conducting neurobiological research. Two-year awards up to $70,000, or $35,000 per year are provided to enable promising investigators to either extend research fellowship training or begin careers as independent research faculty. Basic and/or clinical investigators are supported, but research must be relevant to serious brain and behavior disorders such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders or child and adolescent mental illnesses.
