ARNOLD SCHEIBEL DISTINGUISHED POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW IN NEUROSCIENCE LECTURE

In 2004 the Brain Research Institute initiated the Arnold Scheibel Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroscience Lecture. This annual lecture honors one postdoctoral fellow for outstanding research in neuroscience, and includes presentation of a lecture in the Joint Seminars in Neuroscience series, and a prize to attend a scientific meeting during the year.
