The Silverstein Foundation Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program

In July, The Silverstein Foundation announced the creation of a two-year, post-doctoral fellowship program that will fund scientists engaged in cutting-edge research on GBA-PD in eleven different academic and hospital-based laboratories around the world. These institutions include Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Hamad Bin Khalifa University. Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital (The Neuro), Mount Sinai Health System, Northwestern University, University of Oxford, Stanford University, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, The Ottawa Hospital Institute, and the University of Maryland Medical Center. We have already hosted two meetings of the Silverstein Fellows (see photo above), and collaborative efforts involving these researchers have already begun. We are hopeful that the collective learning and connection fostered by the Fellowship Program will accelerate movement toward a cure for GBA-PD.
