The Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine will provide partial support for Notre Dame graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to attend research conferences in 2018.
The Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, with support from several donors, will once again support Notre Dame undergraduate students to engage in summer research in 2018.
From studying fruit fly wing patterning to stimulating retinal regeneration in zebrafish, four outstanding Notre Dame undergraduate students participated in a summer’s worth of research thanks to the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF).
O. Carter Snead, William P. and Hazel B. White Director of the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Ethics and Culture and professor of law, has been re-appointed as a member of the Pontifical Academy for Life, the pope’s principal advisory group on life issues and bioethics.…
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has recognized 10 University of Notre Dame faculty members for their excellence in research with Early Career Development (CAREER) Awards.
Through the generosity of several donors, The Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine is able to provide summer research fellowships to four outstanding Notre Dame undergraduates this summer. These students are pursuing cutting-edge research in the College of Science and the College of Engineering. “The opportunity for these bright and talented undergraduates to pursue full-time research during the summer is a valuable component of their undergraduate experience,” says Professor David Hyde, Director of the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine. “We are fortunate to have donors that understand and appreciate the value of undergraduate research and support our mission in this area.”
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced the winners of the 2017 Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Overall, 15 Notre Dame students, affiliates, and alumni won the prestigious award. Among this decorated cohort are five current College of Science undergraduate and graduate students and four alumni.
The fellowship was designed to recognize and support outstanding graduate students for three years of study in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) who are pursuing master’s and doctoral degrees in the United States.
Two open postdoctoral research positions are available to study neuronal regeneration of the light-damaged zebrafish retina from the resident Muller glia (Conner et al. (2014) J. Neurosci. 34: 14403-14419; Nelson et al. (2013) J. Neurosci. 33:6524-6539).
