I’m very excited to share that I was awarded a 2019 Sloan Research Fellowship in Neuroscience from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This is a huge honor and I feel very grateful to the Sloan Foundation for their support of our research program. This is the first time a University of Georgia faculty member has been named a Sloan Fellow in the field of Neuroscience. You can see the announcement about our award here and here. You can also see the UGA article about our award, and also the award to Dr. Elizabeth Harvey here. This award will be used to fund our research in regeneration of the nervous system in planarians.
