Please do read the 2020 Summer Updates from our President Catherine Carr. And check out the presentation by the 2020 Forbes Lecturer Jared Diamond.

The 14-week Grass Fellowship Program provides early-career investigators with an unparalleled opportunity (see Fellowship Overview and FAQ) to develop and conduct independent neuroscience research projects within the vibrant scientific community of the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole. Fellows function as both an intellectual and social group during their stay and routinely interact with prominent scientists to build a support network of peers and researchers in their field. The 2020 Forbes Lecturer was given by Dr. Jared Diamond. Former fellows have called the program: “the most enriching experience of my early scientific life,” “the greatest training experience imaginable,” and "one of the most important experiences of my career.”

The program is supported by generous loans from these vendors.
