Academic Honors

Research Award and Fellowship—Postdoctoral researcher Leo Tsz-Ho Tang, Ph.D., has been awarded a two-year fellowship by the Croucher Foundation, a Hong Kong-based private trust that awards scholarships to promising young scientists and clinicians from Hong Kong to pursue research overseas. In connection with the honor he will receive an annual stipend of $48,240, along with an additional $15,000 each year to cover research expenses. The fellowship will support his studies concerning the development of dendrites- extensions on nerve cells-using C. elegans (roundworm)  as a model, to better understand the interaction between novel protein factors that regulate the formation of complex networks within the nervous system. He will conduct his work in the laboratory of Dr. Hannes Buelow, associate professor of genetics and of neuroscience.  In addition to attending an award ceremony, Dr. Tang will present his findings at a symposium to be held at the Croucher Foundation in Hong Kong later this year.
