Leon Levy Presidential Fellowships in Neuroscience
A generous grant from the Leon Levy Foundation enabled the establishment of the Leon Levy Presidential Fellowships in Neuroscience. Designed for recent graduates of Ph.D. or M.D. programs, these fellowships provide a unique level of autonomy and support for promising young scientists at the outset of their careers. In addition to salary support, recipients are granted their own independent laboratory space and receive discretionary funds for equipment and technical staff.
The Levy Presidential Fellowships are designed to promote creativity and interdisciplinary exchange. Researchers take quantitative, theoretical, computational, or biophysical approaches to fundamental questions in neuroscience. Rockefeller’s open, department-free structure and robust network of mentors in biophysics and neuroscience make it a setting that is particularly conducive to fostering research that lies at the intersection of these fields.
