Glickfeld Wins Sloan Fellowship

Prestigious grant recognizes early-career scientists

Lindsey Glickfeld, Ph.D., an assistant professor of neurobiology in the school of medicine, is one of 126 researchers receiving an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation research fellowship for 2015. Awarded annually since 1955, the fellowships honor early-career scientists whose achievements and potential identify them as rising stars and next-generation leaders.

Glickfeld's research is exploring how the neocortex of the brain processes visual information, specifically, how connections between neurons and communication across synapses encode visual input. She will receive $50,000 from the Sloan Foundation to further her research.
