Thursday, 07 March 2013 12:54

Since its inception in 2005, the ALS Postdoctoral Fellowship program has supported young scientists in new and ongoing research projects at the ALS. In many cases, the postdoctoral fellows were also supported by collaborating institutions.

These postdoc "highlights" —listed chronologically—feature a description of their projects while at the ALS, resulting publications, and their current positions and research activities.
