Justine Miller, a second-year student in Lorenz Studer’s lab, has received a 2011 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program Fellowship. Ms. Miller’s selection was based on her outstanding abilities and accomplishments, as well as her potential to contribute to strengthening the vitality of the science and engineering enterprise in the United States. The fellowship stipend is $30,000 per year, and the fellowship is funded for three years.

“It is a great honor to have received the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship to support my research, which is aimed at mimicking human neuronal aging using an in vitro stem cell model of accelerated aging,” said Ms. Miller. “I’m very grateful for the funding, and look forward to the opportunities the fellowship will provide as I continue my graduate work.”
