Yartsev named McKnight Scholar

Professor Michael Yartsev has been selected to receive a 2017 McKnight Scholar Award, which is granted to young scientists who are in the early stages of establishing their own independent laboratories and research careers and who have demonstrated a commitment to neuroscience.

Only six awards were granted to a nationwide pool of over 65 applicants. The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience is an independent organization funded solely by The McKnight Foundation of Minneapolis, Minnesota and led by a board of prominent neuroscientists from around the country.
