Premios y Distinciones

  •   NARSAD Young Investigator award

    ALBERT EINSTEIN COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

    Estados Unidos, 2013

    The NARSAD Young Investigator Grant provides support for the most promising young scientists conducting neurobiological research. A few NARSAD Young Investigator Grantees are selected each year. This is a two-year awards ($60,000) enable promising investigators to either extend research fellowship training or begin careers as independent research faculty

  •   Dennis Shields Awards for Oustanding Postdoctoral Research

    ALBERT EINSTEIN COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

    Chile, 2011

    The Dennis Shields Awards for Outstanding Postdoctoral Research were established in 2004 to honor and acknowledge the contributions made by postdoctoral fellows to research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The awards are based on published research done at Einstein, and are selected by the Einstein Awards Committee. Each year, three awardees receive $5,000 prizes and present their work at a special symposium held in the fall.

  •   Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Postdoctoral Awards

    NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH

    Chile, 2010

    This is a postdoctoral award. The overall goal of the NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) program is to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available in appropriate scientific disciplines to address the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs.

  •   Neuroscience Scholars of the Society for Neuroscience.

    ALBERT EINSTEIN COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

    Estados Unidos, 2010

    The Neuroscience Scholars Program (NSP) is a multi-year program designed to enhance career development and professional networking opportunities for underrepresented and diverse graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the field of neuroscience.

  •   Carl Storm Underrepresented Minority (CSURM) Fellowship

    ALBERT EINSTEIN COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

    Chile, 2010

    This Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for URM graduate students, post docs, faculty and scientists to receive funding assistance to attend their first GRC

  •   Young scientists elected as TWAS (The World Academy of Sciences) Affiliated Member

    THIRD WORLD ACADEMY OF SCIENCES

    Italia, 2015

    This is an award/distinction for Young Scientists who have attained high international standard and have made significant contributions to the advancement of science, and have their origin in Latin America and the Caribbean.

  •   Return Home Fellowships

    International Brain Research Organization (IBRO)

    Francia, 2014

    The objective of the IBRO Return Home Program is to enable young researchers from less developed countries, who have studied neuroscience in advanced research centers, to return home to continue an internationally valid scientific activity in brain research.
