Neuroscience Ph.D. student awarded 2016 Gilliam Fellowship

Antoinette Foster, a Ph.D. student in the Vollum Institute/OHSU neuroscience graduate program, is one of 34 students across the country to receive a Howard Hughes Medical Institute 2016 Gilliam Fellowship for Advanced Study. The fellowships provide full support to promising doctoral students from groups traditionally underrepresented in science. Recipients receive an annual award totaling $46,000, for up to three years.

“The Gilliam Fellows are outstanding young scientists who have expressed a clear commitment to advancing diversity among scientists,” said David Asai, senior director of science education for Howard Hughes Medical Institute. “Their potential for scientific leadership is enormous, and the program emphasizes the professional development of the students and their thesis advisers.”

Foster is mentored by Ben Emery, Ph.D., assistant professor of neurology in the School of Medicine. Read more about this prestigious award here or in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s news release.
