Two Neurobiology Faculty Win Pew Scholarships

Flexible four-year awards for pressing health problems

Jeremy Kay, an assistant professor of neurobiology and ophthamology at Duke Eye Center, and Lindsey Glickfeld, an assistant professor of neurobiology, have been selected as 2014 Pew scholars. They are among just 22 outstanding early-career researchers nationwide to be honored. Each will receive four years of flexible funding to investigate pressing health problems.  Kay's research looks at neural circuits in early developmental stages of the retina and Glickfeld studies neural circuitry and synapses in visual systems. They were selected based on proven creativity by a national advisory committee composed of eminent scientists.
