We are pleased to relay that Hélène Salmon, PhD, and Lara Manganaro, PhD, are the recipients of the 2016 Robin Chemers Neustein Postdoctoral Fellowship Award. They were chosen from a truly outstanding group of postdoctoral candidates who were nominated for the award.
Dr. Salmon works in the laboratory of Miriam Merad, MD, PhD, Professor of Oncological Science and Medicine (Hematology/Oncology) at ISMMS, where her research is focused on understanding the contribution of the tumor stroma to immune responses against cancer. Dr. Manganaro works in the laboratory of Viviana Simon, MD, PhD, Professor of Microbiology, Medicine, and Infectious Diseases at ISMMS, and her research focuses on understanding patterns and mechanisms of HIV drug resistance.
Drs. Salmon and Manganaro are the seventh and eighth recipients of the Robin Chemers Neustein Postdoctoral Fellowship Award, which is intended to encourage and support female research scientists at ISMMS. The award was established in 2010 through a generous gift from Robin Chemers Neustein, a former member of Mount Sinai’s Boards of Trustees. Recipients are senior female postdoctoral scientists who intend to complete their training within two years, and have demonstrated high impact accomplishments in the biomedical sciences, plus the potential for an independent scientific career. As part of the fellowship award, Drs. Salmon and Manganaro will each receive $25,000.
Join us in congratulating Drs. Salmon and Manganaro as the 2016 recipients of the Robin Chemers Neustein Postdoctoral Fellowship Award.
