Brown neuroscientists earn fellowships to study biomedical technologies

Gilad Barnea:  With a competitive new fellowship from the Pew Charitable Trusts, Barnea and a collaborator will attempt to apply his neural circuit tracing technology to tracking the spread of cancer.

With national fellowships awarded on Sept. 20, two Brown University neuroscience faculty members have gained new support for their study of innovative biomedical technologies. The Pew Charitable Trusts will support Gilad Barnea in a project to apply his neural circuit tracing method to tracking the spread of cancer, while a National Science Foundation fellowship will enable Scott Cruikshank to master an advanced technology for controlling brain cells with light.
