Two neuroscience graduate students in CLM labs were recently awarded NSF Graduate Research Fellowships. This program provides fellowships to individuals selected early in their graduate careers based on their demonstrated potential for significant achievements in science and engineering. The Fellowship provides three years of stipend support, plus funds to cover additional educational costs and the potential for additional opportunities to do research abroad.
Brian Gereke, who is co-advised by Dr. Laura Colgin and Dr. Boris Zemelman, receive the fellowship for his proposal entitled “Coordination of local and long-range neural circuits by PV+ interneurons in mice”.
Lauren Kreeger, whose advisor is Dr. Nace Golding, received the fellowship for his proposal entitled “Utilizing Kv1 channel density for auditory coding in the mammalian LSO”.
