Duncan NRI Zoghbi Scholar Award

A special fund has been established by Dr. Huda Zoghbi, director of the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute (Duncan NRI) at Texas Children's Hospital, to honor the many generations of trainees who have worked in her laboratory.

The purpose of this Duncan NRI Zoghbi Scholar Award is to foster the success of the next generation of trainees in biomedical research and help them establish independent research programs.

One scholar per year will be selected from fellows who are currently conducting postdoctoral research at the Duncan NRI and anticipate applying for independent research positions within a year or so.

The scholars will be awarded $50,000 to pursue innovative projects that will form the foundation of their independent research programs. In addition, the awardees also receive a personal prize of $3,000 and a plaque.
