NGP Director Chris Deppmann and NGP student Sushanth Kumar are highlighted in this UVA Today piece about the UVA Brain Institute's Presidential Fellowships in Neuroscience.
Congratulations to Thaddeus Weigel, NGP first year student, who has just received the Peach Fellowship. This fellowship is awarded to first year BIMS students in their 2nd semester who show exceptional promise as determined by (1) their achievements and honors prior to matriculating in BIMS and (2) their academic performance thus far in our graduate program. In recognition of this honor, he will be receiving a one-time monetary award of $500. The Peach Fellowship also covers a portion of the student's stipend.
Shahzad Khan (NGP, George Bloom lab) is famous!
His face made it to the Society for Neuroscience 2018 Annual Meeting website page, as well as the ASCB website home page! Check him out here:
