Gerty and Carl Cori Fellows
Department of Biochemistry
& Molecular Biophysics
Washington University School
The Gerty and Carl Cori Fellows program recognizes outstanding
scientists by giving them the opportunity to transition directly
from their graduate training to independent fellow positions where
they have the freedom to pursue their own research agendas. Fellows
design their own research programs and recruit one or more mentors
from the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biophysics in
the School of Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis. A
generous stipend and research budget ensure the independence of the
Fellow, with mentors acting as collaborators who provide laboratory
space, access to equipment, and advice on both scientific
directions and career development.
