Bose grants reward risk
Miller Lab Alumnus Tim Buschman is one of the winners of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award.
According to the NIH website: The award “is designed specifically to support unusually creative new investigators with highly innovative research ideas at an early stage of their career when they may lack the preliminary data required for an R01 grant.”
We couldn’t be prouder of him if we were a Little Lebowski Urban Achiever.
It was a good week for Miller Lab alumnus David J. Freedman (now a professor at University of Chicago).
Dave won the Distinguished Investigator Award in the Biological Sciences at The University of Chicago (http://www.freedmanlab.org/), was elected to the International Neuropsychological Symposium (INS History), and his band FuzZz had a CD release party.
