One of the programs funded by this event is the IES Brain Research Foundation Student Summer Fellowship Program. The idea is to attract extremely bright, motivated students to the field of neuroscience to add to the work of the senior scientists towards effective treatments and cures. Since 2005, 39 summer fellowships have been awarded. The most exciting result so far, is that from one student fellow and senior scientist, a treatment for glioblastoma (deadly brain cancer) is in clinical trial. You can learn about the many areas the student fellows have been and are working on by going to www.iesBrainResearch.org and read about their amazing summer experiences. Two of the fellows worked with Nobel Prize winners, one worked with a world award winner in Alzheimer’s disease, others with heads of departments at prestigious medical centers and universities. The deadline for 2012 summer fellowship application is March 20th.
