Sung-yon Kim named a Simons Fellow of the Life Sciences Research Foundation

The Life Sciences Research Foundation is pleased to announce recipients of three-year postdoctoral fellowships who will begin their training August 2014.

The awards are the thirty-second to be made by the Foundation, which was organized in 1981 as an alternative instrument for guiding monies from industry, foundations, agencies, and other donors to the non-targeted support of outstanding young scientists. The awardees were chosen by the Foundation’s Peer Review Committee from over 900 applicants. Each recipient will work at a non-profit institution of his or her choice, and each will be identified as the individual recipient of support from one of the Foundation’s Sponsors.
