Sydney Brenner Research Scholarship in the History of Molecular Biology, Genetics, and Biotechnology
The Sydney Brenner Research Scholarship awards funding each year to scholars, historians and writers who study the history of cancer, women in science, molecular biology, genetics, neuroscience, plant biology, the intersection of biology and physics, and other topics relating to the molecular biology revolution.
Deadline: November 30, 2016 (for 2016-2017)
The scholarship was initiated by a student and protégé of Nobel Laureate Sydney Brenner, Dr. Philip Goelet, who wished to pay tribute to his mentor.
