Cristian Aguilar received the GAANN grant through the Department of Developmental and Cell Biology, here at UCI for the year of 2013
The GAANN program provides fellowships, through academic departments and programs of Institutions of Higher Education, to assist graduate students with excellent records who demonstrate financial need and plan to pursue the highest degree available in their course of study at the institution. Grants are awarded to programs and institutions to sustain and enhance the capacity for teaching and research in areas of national need.
Congratulations to Anne Phan & Cristian Aguilar who were named Pedagogical Fellows
Each year the TLTC selects a cadre of excellent and highly experienced TA mentors from across disciplines as part of the Pedagogical Fellows (PF) Program. Fellows receive advanced pedagogical training in preparation for the services they will provide to new TAs during the annual TA Professional Development Program held during Welcome Week. They also participate in a six-unit course in Advanced Pedagogy and Academic Job Preparation

Congratulations to Jeffery Lehrberg for receiving the Grass Fellowship 2013
Grass Fellowships at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA, support investigator-designed, independent research projects by scientists early in their career. Supported approaches include neurophysiology, biophysics, integrative neurobiology, neuroethology, neuroanatomy, neuropharmacology, systems neuroscience, cellular and developmental neurobiology, and computational approaches to neural systems. The Foundation also has a longstanding interest in epilepsy-related research.
