Testimonial

"The Grass Fellowship has been a very nurturing experience as it made me appear as an independant researcher to more senior colleagues, giving me more freedom in my own research while allowing me to interact with bright young researchers during a fantastic summer of research in Woods Hole."

Rapid Effects of Stress Hormones on Auditory Processing and Vocalization Abilities in the Oyster Toadfish Opsanus tau

Testimonial

The Grass Fellowship program was the perfect academic bridge between my PhD and postdoc, and allowed me the freedom to explore diverse research topics on a new model organism, learn novel techniques, and collect enough data for several publications, all within a supportive, fun, and intellectually stimulating environment. My experience as a Grass fellow was amazing, and on multiple levels, has played a significant role in helping me achieve my career goal of becoming an independent scientist in academia.

Project Title

Temperature-related Hormonal Effects on Synaptic Transmission and Plasticity

Testimonial

The Grass Fellowship provided me with the opportunity to perform independent research which was published the following year (Szabo TM, Brookings T, Preuss T, Faber DS. (2008) Effects of temperature acclimation on a central neural circuit and its behavioral output. J Neurophysiol 100(6):2997-3008). The experimental work published in this study was performed solely at the Marine Biological Laboratories in Woods Hole, MA and funded by the Grass Fellowship. Last year, I obtained a position as Assistant Professor and this study provided the foundation not only for my job talk, but is currently the starting point for the work of the three graduate students in my lab as well. The combination of facilities, access to state-of-the-art equipment and interactions with some of the hardest-working, brightest, most helpful, fantastic faculty and staff makes the Grass Fellowship an incredible opportunity for researchers seeking to gain independence and perform research entirely of their own design.

Project Title

Generating Complex Vocal Patterns in Xenopus laevis

Testimonial

"My Grass Fellowship provided the greatest training experience imaginable. It allowed me to pioneer a new technique, develop and implement a project from its inception, and to plan, set up and manage my own small research program. It was a truly invaluable honor, and a whole lot of fun to boot.
