Medical Student Summer Research Fellowships (MSSRF) Awarded

(NREF) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 2021 recipients of the NREF Medical Student Summer Research Fellowships (MSSRFs). With support from Aaron Cohen-Gadol, MD, FAANS, and the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation (SBTF), the NREF is awarding 22 medical student fellowships this year.

The MSSRF program offers fellowships in the amount of $2,500 to medical students in the United States, Canada or Mexico who have completed one or more years of medical school. The fellowship includes summer working in a neurosurgical laboratory, mentored by a neurosurgical investigator sponsor who is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS). 

Annually, these fellowships go to the brightest and most dedicated students, whose research projects are aimed at the better understanding, treatment and prevention of neurological disorders and improved patient care.   

“This year’s awardees represent the future of neurosurgery. The SBTF is honored to join with the NREF in furthering the mission to support research that will one day improve the quality of life for brain tumor patients,” says SBTF Executive Director Geri Shaffer.
