Through funding provided to McKnight Brain Institute by the Karen Toffler Charitable Trust for Neuroscience Research and Education Fund, the MBI established the Toffler Research Awards to provide summer research funds for M.D. and M.D./Ph.D. students in neuroscience. Funding will also be available for students to travel to present their own research.
To be considered for this award, applicants must be an MBI member and an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. student who does not have funding to work in neuroscience research.
