Stefanie Henry wins 2014 Neuroscience Research Prize

Posted on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 by for Awards, Miscellaneous.

After months and months of lab work, Stefanie Henry has so much to show for it. She went to the Philadelphia Convention Center for three days in April and May. She was there for the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology where she was selected as a 2014 Neuroscience Research Prize winner — one of four in the nation. Stefanie was interviewed for a video, which was on display during awards luncheon on the last day of the conference. She also participated in a poster session where other scientists in the field came by to question her about her research. Stefanie may be the only Midwood student to ever win this award.

"It was an amazing experience, I met a lot of phenomenal people and one person approached me about an international PhD program they believe I can get involved in after I graduate from college," said Stefanie. "I feel honored to have been selected and look forward to continuing my research and gaining more opportunities to share my findings with as many people as I can."
