Alex Chubykin awarded Whitehall Foundation grant
Assistant Professor Alexander Chubykin has been awarded a prestigious Whitehall Foundation grant. These three-year awards are currently targeted to the most promising new investigators studying basic neuroscience. Whitehall Foundation grants support scholarly research in the life sciences, in dynamic areas of basic biological research that are not heavily supported by Federal Agencies or other foundations with specialized missions. It emphasizes the support of young scientists at the beginning of their careers. Chubykin's study, "Synaptic and Circuit Mechanisms of Reward Timing in the Mouse Visual Cortex," has been funded for three years starting in June 2015.
