Recent grant supports research trainees
Date:3/20/2009

"Transformative." That's the way David Golan, Harvard Medical School (HMS) dean for graduate education, described the new Nancy Lurie Marks Clinical and Research Fellowship Program in Autism. This cross-cutting initiative, funded by the Nancy Lurie Marks Family Foundation, will provide nearly $5 million over six years to support HMS faculty and students interested in autism and related neurological disorders.

The program will fund autism-focused basic and clinical research in a range of fields, including genetics, genomics, neurology, neuroscience, psychology, informatics, developmental pediatrics, endocrinology and molecular biology. In addition, it will integrate participants across researcher levels, providing funding for junior faculty and postdoctoral trainees, as well as medical students in the new Scholars in Medicine and HMS-PRIME (MDMMSc) programs. As such, the Nancy Lurie Marks Clinical and Research Fellowship Program in Autism is building on HMS initiatives that enhance opportunities for student research and promote translational science, as embodied in the Harvard Catalyst. Both are important priority areas in the Strategic Planning Initiative led by HMS Dean Jeffrey Flier.

Michael Greenberg, the Nathan Marsh Pusey professor of neurobiology and head of that department at HMS, will direct the program; Joseph Volpe, a clinician and clinical researcher and the Bronson Crothers Distinguished Professor of Neurology at Children's Hospital Boston, will be codirector, overseeing the clinical research aspects and the medical student component.

The establishment of this program could not have come at a more opportune time. "Research in autism is at a critical stage where scientific progress is providing new insight into this disorder at a very rapid rate," noted Greenberg. "It is our hope that the Nancy Lurie Marks Clinical and Research Fellowship Program in Autism will allow us to bring our increased understanding of the neurobio
